    Question 1 The guidelines for lockdown are , two or three days and to me this is a bit of a vague rule , so what is best - two days or three ? I suppose if the air sack were on the small side then extra humidity wouldn't help at this stage, two days of lock down then , but I'm only guessing ??? It cant be the turning issue cos' the eggs roll about anyway and when the first chicks arrive they get booted about as all the seperaters have been removed . I know this is a bit of a hit and miss game but can anyone shed any light for me ?
