    I set my eggs on March 22 around 10:30pm. I started counting Sunday (3/23) as day 1. So that means I am on day 16 today. Can someone tell me if I have those dates right?

    Wednesday will be day 18, if I have my dates right, when should I take them out of the turner?? Morning, afternoon, night?

    Thank you so much for the help, this is my first time hatching. [​IMG]

    It's really not that complex! [​IMG] I'd take them out at night though, if you put them in at night...simplest answer I can give.

    Your eggs should start hatching around 4/12, probably overnight. Yes, today is day 16. I would take them out Wed night or Thurs morning. Good luck with your hatch.
