    I just got new Brinsea Mini Advanced incubator this year to use in my room. I am very execited and planning on setting my eggs tomorrow.

    I'm taking advantage of the auto-stop turning feature (as it will be weekend when it's time to stop turning the eggs). I know that the first day you set the eggs does not count as the first of 21 days of incubation. Do I still set the Mini for 21 days, or for 22 days?

    Thanks!

    I set it for 21 days.

    I feel like it turns longer than what the general advice is on this board, but I have had really great hatches with the brinsea- My "worst" hatch was 5/7, and one of those never even developed, and the other was deformed.

    Good luck, I hope you have a great hatch with your kids.


    I have my incubator at my first grader's school. They're 6 days in today, and all seven eggs are developing. Woot!
