    When do you consider it Day 1?
    24 hours after setting the eggs in the incubator?
    Or from the minute you set the eggs in the incubator on?

    It depends... if I want them to hatch early, I consider day one on day two. If I want them to be on time, I consider it day one 24 hours after I put them in.... [​IMG]

    Seriously, day 1 is considered when the inside egg temperature reaches 99.5 and stays that way for 24 hours...

    LoL so so confusing. Ive been using the 24 hours after the eggs were set. Now I'm on Day 5! --Still so Nervous!--
