    Hi BYC, I was reading online that it takes 24 days for my chicks to hatch in an incubator, but it normally people say it's 21 days. So I was wondering which it was lol, because I'm worried that if its 24 days in an incubator I would have to stop turning it on day 21 right? But if it hatches in 21 days I would have to turn it on day 18..So I'm confused! And it's my first time hatching chicks. Thanks for the help! :)
