    i have one Serama egg out of four with a chick in it. Today was day 12. I heard Seramas hatch before 21 days. When do I lockdown? What should temp and humidity be on lockdown? Thanks

    Sometimes bantam eggs will hatch a little sooner that standard sized fowl. You can still do lockdown on day 18.

    What muttsfan said. Temp stays the same humidity is raised to at LEAST 65%. (I shoot for 75%)
