    I set our eggs Oct 11 about 11 pm. We had a few issues with temps but candling showed several viable eggs. Since it was so late in the evening should lockdown be Friday the 28th at the same time?

    No matter what time of day I set my eggs I go into lockdown on day 18 or 19. It doesn't affect my hatches any.
