    So I was reading another post and it says that my day one should be the day after i put the eggs in the bator, but i was counting the day I put them in the bator as day 1,

    Put eggs in on March 12 2009 and so day 18 would have been yesterday but I took them out of the turner on SUNDAY,

    Will that be a problem for me becuase they did not get another day in the turner.

    I hope i did not kill them. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Day 18 for you was yesterday. Not sure what happens when you stop turning a day early. Hopefully someone can help out with that.

    I did the same thing because I read somewhere that if you put the eggs in the bator in the am then that day was considered Day 1. It didn't hurt mine at all. I put them in the bator Friday morning (my day 18) and they began pipping Sat. night and began hatching Sunday morning through Monday around lunch. They were right on time. BTW this was my first time too, Good Luck !!!
