First time incubating my own eggs and would like to try my best to share the experience with my over the road husband. Originally thought to set them 21 days before he is due home but in reading others experiences it might be all over by then. What day should I set them to have him be most likely to witness if he is home Saturday and Sunday? Do chicks ever hatch before day 18 lock down? I know it seems silly but he was so excited when he got to pick up our third batch of day olds from the post office, He misses a lot of the fun stuff.
