    I set my 4 eggs on March 1 at approx 440 pm. Tomorrow will be my 18th day. Do I turn them during the day and increase humidity at night and wait or leave them completely alone on the 18th day?

    i took it as turn day 18 and stop after that...so dont turn tomorrow and make sure and turn the humidity up while you are watching it to make sure it doesnt go too high
  4. You can do either. Some stop turning the beginning of day 18 and up the humidity, others wait till the end of day 18.
