    Hello I put my eggs in the incubator on Aug 28th at 4:00pm ,do I count that as day 1? and what day and time should I do lockdown? thanks,,
     
  2. Hi! By my calculations, Day 18 begins at 4:00 on the 15th (and Day 21 begins Sun, the 18th at 4:00).
    Good luck!

    The time isn't a huge deal, because if you think about it a hen isn't going to have her clock ticking when it's lockdown. The days are count by the day you put them in count 3 weeks, soo if you put them in on a monday count three monday later, if Tuesday again count three tuesdays then count 3 days back for lockdown.
