    When day 18 comes for lockdown, do you count day one from the day you put the eggs in or count from the next day as day one?

    Thanks

    Day 1 is counted the next day so after a full 24 hours of incubation. Say you set on a Monday morning, day 1 would be Tuesday morning, day 2 would be Wednesday and so on.

    PS ~ your avatar is very very cute :love

    You are gonna laugh at this one....I was sleeping in the barn waiting for 'Precious' to kid and trying to get some sleep with 'Sch├Ątzie' decised to climb up and sleep at the bottom of my feet on the lounge chair...she is a sweet heart goat.. She slept I couldn't LOL
    Yes there are small breeds...mine are Nigerian Dwarf...dairy goats...they get the size of a med size lab. There are pygmy goats, which are similar but more stockier and smaller...they are considered meat goats... The are all adorable and fun.
