Hi all! I am a newbie Hatcher, on day 18 of my first hatch. To begin with, I am using the Incuview incubator, which is a plastic model not unlike a Brinsea or Genesis for size. If you use a larger, cabinate model, your comments might not help much (no offence meant). I am confused about how people handle lock down / hatching in terms of opening or not opening their 'bator. First, I understand that the chicks can go for three days without food/water. That's not my concern. My concern (or confusion) comes from what I read that people often share about early hatching chicks, as they dry and start to run around, will knock unhatched eggs sideways and then those eggs die because the chicks can't pip and rip properly, so they tend to remove chicks as soon as they are dry, interrupting lockdown briefly. Other people say DO NOT under any circumstances open your incubator until the hatch is done. So, what do you do? I would really love to hear from people who are experienced with more than several hatches as to what they do during lockdown. Thanks in advance for your answers!
