    So day 18, in the morning, will be July 14. Do I take them off the turner in the afternoon? I put them in before noon on the 27th of June. These are not my eggs I'm doing them for someone and I want to get the best hatch for her. I think I'm right on waiting until afternoon. [​IMG] I always get confused as do you take them off the turner on day 18 or after day 18?

    It's funny, I ask her how long she was collecting the eggs and she told me 3 weeks. I said OMG. [​IMG] So out of 32 eggs, 9 were clear, one of the 9 smelled bad and one have a blood ring. 2 are maybes and 20 had veins and moving.

    Wow ~ she's lucky only that many were bad! P-U!

    I normally do it the night of the 18th, but I have banties and they normally seem to hatch sooner for me than standards for some reason. (I don't know what you have so just putting that there in case.)

    I really don't know what they are. Some are small, some are big, and one is white. Whoever heard of a white egg.LOL
