Help with counting days!?!?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I set my eggs on Thursday March 3rd at 4:45 P.M. On what day do I need to stop turning the eggs?

They should be put in lockdown on the 21st and will begin hatching sometime around the 24th-25th.

Are you hatching chicken eggs? If you are hatching chicken eggs, March 21, st would be day 18 and normally lockdown and when you stop turning eggs take out any turners and up the humidity. I stop turning the end of day 13 myself, but most people do this at day 18.  The 24th should be "hatch day", but you could see pips as early as day 19 or you could have action a day or two past hatch day with good chances of healthy chicks.

 

Good luck!
