    About 18 days ago but the lady collected the eggs for me over about a period of a week from her hens. Would that matter?

    You start counting from when you put them in the incubator. If you put them in before noon that's day 1, if you put them after noon you count the next day as day1.

    No, it's not a bad sign...it takes them 21 days to hatch...give or take a day. If you think it's only been 18 days, you should stop turning them and up the humidity and then leave the incubator shut until at least day 22.
