    I set eggs early in the morning, so is this day 1 or no? Depending on this is weather my eggs go into lockdown today or tomorrow.

    Thanks BYC friends!

    You count day 1 after 24 hours of incubation. So say you set on a Monday morning at 9am you say day 1 is Tuesday at 9am, day 2 is Wednesday at 9 am, day 3 is Thursday at 9am and so on.
