    You stop turning them. Lockdown means you raise the hunmidity, stop turning them, and prepare for them to hatch. For me, that means I take out the turner and lay them on their sides on the bottom of the incubator. Some people hatch in egg cartons. We all have our own way of doing things, but lockdown means raising the humidity and quit turining.
