    Is there a time to set your eggs so that your eggs will hatch during the day and not during the night so you can watch your eggs hatching. Thanks Sarah

    Nope. The 21 days is an average. They'll hatch when they jolly well please to hatch.

    Totally agree.
    It doesn't matter what time of day I set mine, they almost always end up beginning hatching out at night! Hatch time is usually pretty sleepless for me. Ha!
