    I thought that if I put the eggs in the bater before noon that, day was counted as day 1.
    If I put my eggs in the bater on Jan11 at 11:15 a[​IMG]m then how old are my eggs?

    by the time they started it was after noon. Youvsre on day 20. They are not going to drown or dry up. If you want any to hatch you need to just hang in there and leave them alone.
