    I put 13 eggs in the incubator on Wednesday March at 3pm....so does that make my 18th day Sunday the 23rd at 3pm? Therefore I would turn the eggs up until 3pm? Or do I not turn at all on the 23rd.....maybe I am overthinking this but this is my first hatch and I have come this far and do not want to mess up. I definitely have 7 eggs with little chicks moving around and 3 eggs which are green and I can't see through them. Thank you again for your help...this site has helped me get as far as I have!!!![​IMG]

  4. [​IMG] That's what I thought, just wanted to make sure.

    I'd do my last turning Sun afternoon.
    Good luck with the hatch!

    Quote:The general way to count is - before noon count that day as day 1 and after noon you count the following day as day 1.

    So did you put them in at 3 pm on Wednesday March 5th? I count sunday the 23rd as day 18 [​IMG]
