    I set my eggs on the 1st at 4:30 or so, they are doing good when I candle them and I have 39 of the 41 I initially set.

    My question is this, would you all recommend locking them down today at 4:30pm or just wait until tomorrow morning?

    the first was a sat so day 21 would be on a sat. if you put them in at 430 sat then sunday at 430 would be day one. the day you put them in is considered day 0 if i am making any since here.

    day 0 = set at 1230 ish for me today (tuesday)
    day 1 = 1230ish the next day (wensday)
