    Hello all. My husband and I set eggs for the first time this past Friday 2/10. We have read differing opinions on when the eggs go on lock down. I was told on the 16th day the eggs go on lock down but the instructions that came with the incubator said day 18. Which one is correct?

    We have a hovabator still air incubator. Thanks for any help.
