    When is lockdown for duck eggs? Is it the last three days including hatch day? Or is it last three days BEFORE hatch day? I'm at day 24 right now, so it's either tomorrow or Saturday. I can still see some fluid at the small end of the egg right now. Maybe a 1/4 of an inch of space at the bottom..is that ok?
