    Lockdown for me is tomorrow, but here's my question, I put the eggs into the incubator at 8:00 at night, so technically lockdown should be 8:00 tomorrow. But i was going to go to lockdown today, today was going to be the last time I turn them. But technically they should be turned one more time in the morning tomorrow.

    Should I be that techincal when it comes to lockdown???? Should I wait until 8:00 tomorrow night and keep turning them until that time?? or should I stop tonight??

    Think of a mother hen...she's not that specific. I would give them one last turn and wait. Good Luck!!
