    If I set the eggs on March 26 at 7:15 pm. Is that considered day one or is day one considered March 27. I am trying to count the days to hatch and although that seems silly I really don't know. I want to make sure I stop turning them on the right day.

    I'm the same way. In that case, you would count the next day as Day One. Someone once told me the rule is if you set before noon, that same day is Day One; if after noon, then the next day is Day One.
