with Chickens, will it end on a Friday?
i always start mine at 6:00 am, and day 1 starts 24 hours later. 1st day is day 0. then 21 days later is hatch day
If you set eggs in the morning, the day you set them is day 1. If set in the afternoon/evening, day 1 is the next day. Basically, the eggs are due 3 weeks later, the day before So if they are set on Friday, they should hatch on Thursday, and so on.
Day 1 starts when you put the eggs in the bator. So if you want to be technical, if the eggs are set on Saturday at 5 p.m., they would be due 3 weeks later on Friday at 5 p.m. Hope this helps
Of course, that`s assuming your temps have been just right. A little too hot or a little cool can bring them early or late.

So I started at 10 AM February 28th. Today, March 17 would be day 18 right? So I need to stop turning and up the humidity?

I'm having a hard time seeing with all the chicks in there. I think one is not moving, but last night when I was trying to candle I bumped one egg against the light and formed a small crack (I am trying the candle wax over it). I decided not to risk candleing these guys with my clumsy hands. I added water last night, and the temp this morning was down to 95 so when I tried to get it back up, this afternoon it shot up to 104. I am stressing out..
