    HELP...... Will it be day 17 or 18 for me.
    I set the eggs on 4/26 at 6:00 pm.
    I have counted about 10 times. Keep coming out with different days and time to stop turning.

    If you set at 6pm, that day would be zero. THen the next day would be day 1 (at 6pm) and so on. Stop turning on Day 18.

    Good luck!
