    I put my eggs in the incubator at 430pm this evening. Is this day one or would tomorrow be day one?

    Can you tell this is my first time? [​IMG]

    I say that tomorrow is day 1, if I put them in the bator later in the day. If I put them in early, then I count that as day 1.

    Good, I counted tomorrow as day one. They're guinea eggs so, correct me if I'm wrong, I think they go 28 days. That puts day 28 on a Friday and I will be home from work on the weekend. May have to call in sick June 6th. [​IMG]

    Oh, I dont know how long guinea eggs incubate- however, with my last hatch, I had a pip and had to go to work...drove me insane all day long wondering how the babies were, [​IMG] if any had hatched, etc....
    I was NOT a good employee that day, way too distracted...
