You turn to day 18, then lockdown.
Quote:If they just chicken eggs then yes... 18 days and then put them in lockdown in which you do not touch the eggs or open the bator until after the chicks hatch! Sending hatching vibes your way!
You turn the eggs at least twice a day (keep bigger egg end up higher). Heat should be around 101.5, humidity 60-65%. This is from day one to day 18. On day 19, raise the humidity to 80-85% and don't touch anything. No more turning the eggs. Keep an eye on the temp because it will fluctuate the last couple days before hatching. Make sure you are not touching the eggs with bare hands, unless you can't help it. Your hands carry oils and germs that can affect the eggs and development. Day 21 will be hatch day, so my advice there would be to make sure you're home so you don't miss it! Good luck!
