    Okay.

    I set my eggs

    March 2, 2012 @ 8:30pm.

    On the instructions it says to uncover a hole of the incubator on the 3rd day. So would that be tomorrow since the first day was the set day? (March 2,2012)
    Or would it be Monday the 3rd day?

    If monday is the 3rd day, then it would mean

    18th day is March 20, 2012.

    hmm. Anybody?

    It is my understanding that if you set your eggs at night then you count the next day as day one. So Monday would be the 3rd day. But I am a newbie myself...so....maybe someone else has a better answer...
    I know I have read that in a few different locations because I had the same 'timing' type questions. I seem to always set my eggs at night..

    I set mine tonight so for me tomorrow will be day 1. So, mine should hatch the 24th/ 25th range I lockdown on the 21st. [​IMG]
