I've been placing 2-4 eggs in my incubator every other day just about, and the first are scheduled to hatch on the 7th and then every other day a couple more are suppose to hatch. If all goes to plan it will mess up the supposed "lock down" time, for I'll have to open up to grab out the chicks when they're 24-72 hours old. I've heard of people doing this quite often but I need some more opinions on the matter. Should I just leave it closed for 72 hours and then pick out all the chicks and wait for another 72 hours and on and on? Any advice will help!
