    Math is not my strong point. Hoping someone can double check to make sure I am doing the days correctly.
    I have button quail eggs in the incubator. Lock down for button quail is at 13 days and they can be expected to hatch around day 16.
    They were placed in the incubator today (April 14th) at 11:40 am. Lock down should be April 27th at 11:40 am, right?
    Thanks!

    Yes, that is exactlly what I get, the easiest way to figure it out instead of sitting there counting days, is to look at a calender and go down two weeks the 21st is one week and the 28th would be two weeks well two weeks is 14 days you said 13 days so just go back one day.. and I get day 27 but the time doesn't matter. It doesn't have to be exactlly at 11:40.. just as long as you lockdown on that day.. So once you lock them down, they should hatch on the 30th that's sooo cool, well good luck to you...
