    I have done this many times before but never kept track of exact times. My eggs will be a full 21 days on Feb. 22 at 7:45 am. My question is do they hatch after a full 21 days or sometime during day 21. I usually set mine to so they hatch on sat. or sun. but these were shipped eggs and i set them sooner. I know that some might hatch early and some late. I just want to make sure i am here when it happens. I set on a Friday so they should hatch on friday right.

    The typical guideline is they will hatch on the same day of the week they were set, however most of us know there is nothing typical about hatching.
