and what does "LOCKDOWN" mean? It sounds so dramatic...does it just mean NOT openining it for day 26, 27 and 28?

Can I add these extra eggs? I really want to know as I will go do it right now.

I would wait 2 more days.. when I stagger hatches, I try to get at least 5 days between hatches.. It has to do with opening the bator when the later eggs are going to be pipping.. I could go into a long explanation, but I think you are smart enough to figure it out from here..
