Okay, I got too many eggs for my broodies to set (partially because I don't trust one with more than just a few), so I borrowed a brand new incubator from a friend. It is octogon shaped and clear on top, and does not have an automatic turner. The brand name is Janoel. I am planning on turning the eggs three times a day, but will be leaving out of town from Friday afternoon till Sunday mid-day. How important is it for the eggs to be turned in the early stages? My Mom will stop by to check on my birds on Saturday, and she could turn them then. Would it be better to wait until we get back on Sunday? I got some eggs for my friend at a swap on Saturday, and I won eggs on here last Tuesday but they haven't arrived yet. So if I wait till Sunday the eggs from the swap will all be at least 8 days old, and I don't know when the seller collected eggs or when he mailed them out. I am also in Florida and my house is about 78 degrees, the eggs I got at the swap for her are sitting on my table. There are no cooler areas - anywhere....... It mentions moving them around while you are waiting to put them in, but I don't quite get what it means. Do you tilt the whole carton back and forth at and angle?
