    three times a day
    4-9 hours interval

    [​IMG] 180 degrees each time. Marking the eggs on each side is a good way to make sure you are turning them ll the way. Also its a good idea to move them around as you turn so they arent always in the same spot in the incubator.

    [​IMG] Yep, making sure that you turn them an odd number of times (3) makes sure that they aren't laying on their same side every night, which would be the longest period you go without turning them.
