    Today is day 20 for my eggs and this is the first time i've tried to hatch some. Does it matter if they are in a room that has the lights on or off? I have them in a dark room but keep thinking if i keep the light on they will "wake up" and hatch.

    Doesn't matter in the least.

    It is usually rather dark under a hen, though, y'know?
