    I don't know what day I should have started as day 1. I set my eggs at midnight on Thanksgiving. So would that friday have been day 1?

    The day after you set eggs, is when to count as day one.
    I loved the way cmom explained it - "Your not one year old the day your born, it's the next year, that you are one."
    Same applies for chickens. Day one does not start the day you set the eggs, but the day after.

    Good luck

    Well thats why I'm confused. I set them at midnight. So Thursday was over Friday was just starting. LOL Would friday be considered day 0 or day 1. Understand why I'm confused?

    Haha, it does get a bit confusing.

    If you set them on Thursday at midnight, then Friday at midnight would be day one.
