    Ok, I've sat here and just thoroughly confused myself. So I thought I would let someone else straighten me out.

    I set my Delaware eggs on Nov. 8th, at 6pm. So actually, their 18th day doesn't begin until tomorrow night at 6pm...correct? So, after 6pm I should turn them one last time and up the humidity...is this correct?

    Yep! [​IMG] Sounds like a plan to me! But honestly, cranking the humidity and not turning them for one day more than norm would not hurt them. But yes you are correct! Just get into the habit of setting them always in the evening or always in the morning, that way you won't confuse yourself too badly (maybe!)
