    I have a quick question... My incubator I have to manually turn eggs 3 times a day by hand, but on lockdown (day 18) is it back to still turn them? Or are you not supposed to?

    No, don't turn eggs after day 18. They need time to position themselves in the egg for hatch

    First hatch is exciting. Interesting.

    But you didn't say what you were cooking there?

    Welcome, and as Beetandsteet said, let us know how it goes.
