    Tonight but its not that important to be exact. If you her chirping then you need to hurry up an get them in to lockdown but for the most part somewhere around day 18 works.

    No chirping yet but I did candle them tonight and air sacks look good and their all still moving but it looks like there is alot of room still in eggs. I lost one the other night and it was only about maybe 2 inches long but perfectly formed. I just hope they are ready to go into lockdown. This is first hatch for me. [​IMG]
