Im confused....I put my eggs in the incubator on May 18th.
Does the time line start the next day? .... 24 hours later is DAY 1 , MAY 19th as its a FULL 24 hrs since they went in?
Or is the day you put them IN the incubator Day 1?
If I put eggs in an incubator or under a hen I look at the day, say it's Tuesday, then I expect chicks Tuesday 3 weeks later. (Which of course means the chicks hatch either Monday or Wednesday...
But, yeah, 24 hours is day 1. 20 to go.
A thread here said that if you post them before noon, that day is day one, and if you post them after noon, the next day is day one. :idunno That's just what I follow and it works. Chicks hatch right on time. I set some eggs at 9:00pm on April 1st, and they hatched April 22nd. If I had made April 2nd the first day they would have hatched April 21st like I had expected. Make sense? lol.

Hope I could help.

I'll go get the link for the hatching thread :)
