    This site is great for answering a lot of incubation questions.

    What Day Should They Stop Turning

    Day 18

    What Day Should They Hatch Rhode Island Reds

    The average is 21 days. Some may hatch a day early of late but right at 21 days

    Should I Count The First Day Or Not

    Day 1 would be 24 hours after you put them in, April 21 in your case. Friday May 8 would be day 18, so you should stop turning them.
