    I am fearing this is quite a dumb question but I don't care I want to make sure.

    So I set my eggs on Sunday March 11 at 5:30pm so does that mean I am on day 8 right now, and going on day 9 at 5:30 tonight? I should have set them frist thing in the morning but I was hoping to set it up so that maybe every one will be home when they hatch!

    Wow this pic turned out really big. LOL

    Howdy neighbor, not a dumb question. Basic rule of thumb is before noon, that is your Day 1. After noon, the next day completes Day 1 (24 hours).

    Yes, you're on Day 8. I've put mine in at 5AM on 3/13, I'm on Day 7. Got it?

    Good luck with your hatch.

    Ok good, so I am on the right page. I was not sure if there was any consideration for the eggs getting to temp in the bator first before your day began or any thing like that.

    Thank you for your quick answer, I know I am not that close but wanted to make sure I began lockdown on the right day!
