I heard that you have to stop egg turning 2 days befor hatching, well with bantam eggs I also heard that they might take less time to hatch then normal eggs (19-21 days) so what day would I stop turing them? day 17 or 19? I am also shipping my eggs. Do I have to let them sit for 24 hours?
you could always split the difference and stop turning on day 19. I usually stop on day 19 for all my chicken eggs unless I hear peeping. I have a turning cradle though, so I've actually had chicks hatch while the incubator was still turning.

I've read you should let them sit anywhere from 8 hours to 24 hours. I personally go with 8 as I am not very patient.
