Lockdown beginning day 18 or end of day 18?

    I can't remember when you stop turning and up the humidity. I set the eggs just before midnight on the 9th. So I think I am on the start of day 17 now. No day 16. I have totally confused myself. When do I start my lockdown? Can anyone help me get this right?

    You don't count the day you set them. The end of the 10th is day 1, then end of today (midnight) is day 16. I would start lockdown on the morning of the 28th or midnight the 27th. I also set eggs on the 9th but mine were set around 2 pm. instead of midnight. I will start lockdown on the 27th at noon.
