    I set my eggs last Saturday (Feb. 28) at 1pm. I am not sure if I am supposed to start my lock down on March 18 or 19?? Just not sure when to start counting the days.

    The 18th would be your lockdown day. You start your count 24 hours after they set so March 1st at 1pm would have started day 1, so 21 days will be the 21st.
