    I'm now on day 19, started lockdown yesterday day 18. Got a few pips already and can hear chirping. Just want to know how many days you do lockdown for?

    X2 With one exception if the hatch goes over 2 days you can quickly gab some dry chicks out if you have no pips going on at the time, but if the hatch only takes 2 days just stay in lock down they will be fine for 2 days.
