    I set eggs in incubator at 1200 am on 1-11-2012 ( wed. ) so today is hatch day right? I have been reading on some post and it says if you set on wed. Hatch day is same day 3 weeks later so I'm confused because today is Tuesday ?

    Assuming you are hatching chickens, and not some other kind of bird... Your hatch day is officially 2/1/12.

    But remember, that birds don't exactly hatch to the day. Some can come a day or two early, or late.

    They should have been put on lockdown after 18 days (1/29/12) and hatching could have begun as early as that. But they can be late, too. So they could be hatching now or over the next couple of days.
