    It's not quite that exact. They may hatch within a 48 hour period [or more] around the 21 day mark.

    Well they will probably hatch between today and the next two days. I personally would rather have the temp between 99-100* dry humidity til day 18 bump up to 70 or above. There are others that do it your way. Either way I wish you luck..and here is some [​IMG]

    I got a pip! It's on the wrong side of the egg though. What should I do?

    I've hatched at least 6 groups. I guess my incubator must be a starter one because it isn't as advanced as these being talked about. I have had very successful hatches though. I didn't know there was a wrong side. I've only read that you stop turning them three days before they are due (day 21). And then they settle into their own position to hatch from. After they start hatching the newbies move the other eggs around anyway. (In my tractor supply incubator without the turning accessory). I have some very healthy chirping little chicks that just hatched on Friday/Sat.
