    This is my first time hatching and I have a question about lock down. My date is June 1st but my question is do I lockdown that morning or the same time I actually set my eggs? Thanks in advance.

    Lockdown would be today for you. You always lock them down three days before hatch time. I assume you know to up the humidity for lockdown, right?

    Same time you set the eggs. I dont think it has to be exact.
