    Lockdown is the term used to describe the last three days of incubation when you increase humity and stop turning the eggs in preparation for them to hatch. [​IMG] Lock being the main work.... as many people almost need to put a lock on the incubator and loose the key for three days as the temptation is so great to open the incubator to get a better idea of what is going on in there.
