    So I set my bantam mottled cochin eggs Saturday October 6 at 9 am. What date and time should I go to lockdown - I will be boosting the humidity and switching the eggs from the turner into a paper egg tray for hatching then. I am still a little fuzzy on how to count down the days and want to do everything perfect this time...
