    Only count the first day if you put them in that morning. If you put them in at 2:30pm, I'd count the next day as day 1.

    Good luck with your hatch!

    i would count the next day as day 1 so if you set them on

    10/29 ~ day 0
    10/30 ~ day 1
    10/31 ~ day 2
    11/01 ~ day 3
    ect...

    so the 16th would be lockdown and on around the 19th would be hatch day for you [​IMG]
