    ... the term 'lockdown.'?

    I hate that term. I find it highly irritating. Can we find another one please? [​IMG]

    Thank gawd I'm not the only one....


    ETA: That was a good thread... I'm glad I have company. My skin crawls a little each time I see that word in a thread title.

    I don't like the term, either. Reminds me of prison.

    I love it! It makes me think of tiny chicks going into tiny chick lockdown and it's so adorable. Chicks and prison, come on! It's funny.

    I love the term "Lockdown".

    You get that humidity where it belongs and you don't open that bator for any reason.

    .... nah,

    just foolin' with ya.

    I don't care what they call it.

    Just as long as I'm not called late

    for dinner.

    It just means locking the lid down for the final hatching event. I don't have a problem with it.

    What would suggest as an alternative?
