    Need definitive answer.... Do I move the eggs to the hatcher at the beginning or end of day 18? My Australorps start day 18 at 11am on Sunday. When should I take them out of turner and turn humidity up?

    Anytime between day 18-19 is fine. I usually wait until the end of day 18 or early day 19 for standard eggs. Good luck with your hatch.

    Jody!! These are your babies!! I am so excited. I have much higher hopes for this hatch than the Welsummers. These sweeties will be in the 1588 with the good hygrometer. I will keep you posted on how they do!
