    I am getting some Buff Opington eggs from a lady on ebay (12 eggs) and I have Incubated a batch of eggs less that 3 months ago, they were Silkie eggs, are Buff Orpington eggs any different than silkie eggs. I am also get a Automatic turner (Turning by hand was a hasle) how many times does a Little giant egg turner, turn each day I hope at the most its just 3 thats how many times I turned the other eggs and it worked out perfectly.

    All answers are welcome and thanks very much if you ansered some of my questions.

    What type of incubator do you have?

    The egg turner is constantly moving but it moves so slow I couldn't tell you how many times it turns them.

    I bet turning them by hand was a hassle.
