We've got about 3 or 3.5 days left on the 28 day countdown. A few of our Welsh Harlequin eggs are already pipped internally, but the larger Silver Appleyard eggs are not. Should we start in on lockdown mode earlier than planned or let those internally pipped guys hang out for another 1.5 days? I'm not sure what is worse, the extra humidity and lack of rotating for the eggs that haven't pipped yet, or making the internally pipped guys wait a little longer for increased humidity and some peace from the automatic rotator. Any opinions? Leaning toward sticking to standard timeline but don't want to screw up the guys that might be a little bit ahead of schedule. Thanks for any feedback.
