    3 eggs went into the incubator at the same time. Then I decided to add on the day after and then another as my hen laid them.
    So, 3 eggs are all on time 1 egg will be going into lockdown a day early which I don't think is a big deal but the other egg will be 2 days early.

    Any Thoughts?

    I know that there is the issue with leaving the newly hatched in the incubator for more than 48 hours but I will quickly remove them as needed. Top off the incubator for 3 seconds top
