    Hello,
    I don't suppose anyone has one of these? I've just borrowed one from a friend, got it all switched on. The bit that makes the plastic egg turning bit is making a noise but doesn't seem to be moving. I just wondered if this was normal and it only moved occasionally at specific intervals, or if it's not working properly. If it's not working, I guess I can turn the eggs manually (hubby let me put incubator in living room rather than shed so it's easy to get to [​IMG]), in which case- how often should I turn the eggs?
    Thanks [​IMG]

    Not sure how often an automatic turner turns the eggs but I turn my eggs at least 3 times a day, usually 5 times.

    My turner take 6 hours to make the turn back and forth. I think they move very slow.
