    I am supposed to go into lockdown tomorrow night, will that hurt the less developed eggs? Or will it all work out some how?

    Just lockdown as usual. The eggs will hatch as they are ready, perhaps over a day or two. Remember that all locked-down eggs may not hatch, but that does not mean you locked down too early. There are a number of reasons why you can have late quitters.

    Have fun, and [​IMG]
