    Today is day 18 for my silkie, sebright, and bantam mix eggs. Today is the day that I stop turning, right? I wanted to make that sure. Also, my sebrights and bantam eggs will usually hatch on day 19 or 20, do you have that happen? I cant wait till they hatch? Day 21 is mothers day.

    I put them in around 11:30pm, 18 days ago, so I just took them out of the turner, candled them one last time, and put a wet sponge in the bator and filled up the water resivour.
