    I set 12 eggs on the 13th at midnight so the 14th was day 1. Am I right i should go into lockdown on the 31st? This is my first time incubating and i have a homemade incubator so far everything has been perfect and 10 out of 12 are looking good.

    Sure, 31st evening or the 1st morning to get your last chance to play with the eggs is exactly right.
