    Hello everyone!
    i just received my mini advance in the mail and have it set up now. But i am having trouble with if I should set the cooling option on or if i do what to set it at? Also for turning what should i set that at? right now i have no eggs in the incubator but the turning is set at 180 minutes and turning interval at 13 which i have no clue if that is good or not.

    If anyone has any tips or can help me out it would be greatly appreciated ^_^ Thank you

    Hi,
    I turn the cooling off since I am a candle daily. I have mine set on 180 for turning and 5 for the interval. Not sure why the 5. I have silkies.

    Thank you! i didn't think i was going to use the cooling option since i would be opening it to add water and candle. i have many different breeds of chickens so i am going to have to watch the eggs turn when i add them
