    Sorry I am such a newbee. Is Day 1 the first day you put the eggs in the bater then they hatch on Day 21?

    OR,

    Is Day 1 the next day after the eggs have been in the bator for one full day and then they hatch on Day 21?

    I locked down yesterday. Eggs went into bator on November 3rd. Just want to know when I should start seeing pipping.

    Thanks

    Quote:If you set your eggs before noon or early afternoon, that is considered day one. If you set them in late evening the next day will be your day one.
