Its day 16 for my Serama eggs and I was wondering if I should start the lockdown today. Ive heard people say they can hatch early so that's one of my concerns. Will anything bad happen to them if I start lockdown today instead of day 18? Any help is greatly appreciated.

You can lock them down as early as Day 14. You will not hurt anything locking them down early. Bantams did not hatch earlier, but sometimes chickens do hatch as early as day 18. Sometimes it’s because the heat in the bator was higher than normal.

Good luck with everything.
