I have read different things on different websites.... Some say lockdown on day 17 and some say day 18. My first hatch in my still air. I have 7 eggs, one is porous and I see no movement but is getting darker with the rest of the eggs which are all moving so people suggested to leave it. Tomorrow (Thursday) is day 17. I have to work tomorrow night so I will be probably sleeping until about 2pm on Friday day 18. Should I start lockdown tomorrow then or wait? Thanks for the help!

It won't matter 1 day or the other. If I had to make a choice I'd rather do it later on Day 18 so the eggs have more time to dry out before raising the humidity during lockdown.
