    So I'm hatching eggs in my daughters classroom, our hatch date is April 12th so that would make April 9th (Saturday) day 18 and time to remove the egg turner and lockdown the incubator. Unfortunately her school is closed and locked on the weekends. How bad would it be if I started the lockdown on Friday night around 6/7pm??

    They have good hatches.
