Second hatch issues

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

We have an automatic incubator so all I had to do first time round was monitor the temp and humidity!

After having to detach the turner and reattach it for hatch #2 it's no longer working... I've checked all that I can think of and its not working so I'm just going to have to turn by hand morning midday and night...
What time between turning do I need to do?

I would recommend turning every 2-3 hours

I turn 3 times a day.

I turn at least 3 times a day. If I can get an extra couple turns in I turn 5, but I've never done more than 5.
