    When incubating eggs the first day you set them in the turner do you count that as day 1 or is the following day 1? cause i set my eggs May 14 around 10AM i think so do i stop turning them May 31 or June 1? cause i read somewhere it says if you set the eggs late in the evening the following day is 1st day of incubation and if set during morning or noon then thats the first incubation day
