    When does day one start? The day you put the eggs in the incubator or is day one when the eggs have been in the incubator for 24hrs and that is the start of day one? Does that make sense?

    This is just the way I do it, say I put eggs in the bator at 8am today, that starts day one, 8am tomorrow starts day 2. [​IMG]
