time to set eggs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Is there a time to set your eggs so that your eggs will hatch during the day and not during the night so you can watch your eggs hatching. Thanks Sarah

Nope.  The 21 days is an average.  They'll hatch when they jolly well please to hatch.  

Jesus Christ is my pilot.

My husband of 41 years is my best friend and co-pilot.

Enjoying my gardens.  My flock are my garden helpers.

Breeding a winter hearty flock with small combs and colored eggs.

Favorite breeds:  Dominique and EE.  Hatching addict.

Totally agree. 

It doesn't matter what time of day I set mine, they almost always end up beginning hatching out at night! Hatch time is usually pretty sleepless for me. Ha!
