    What Day Do I Stop Turning The Eggs In The Incubator? Do I Stop All Activities That Require Opening The Incubator?

    Day 18 - no opening, no turning. That much I do know.

    What type of eggs...chicken, duck, turkey? Most chickens take 21 days to incubate and lockdown is on day 18. Make sure the humidity is up and then do not open the incubator until all eggs have hatched or it has gone to the 23rd or 24th day. Chicks do not have to eat right away as they have yolk that has been absorbed and can last 2-3 days without food or water. Good luck!!!!
