    Tomorrow will be Day 18 for me, first time incubator. [​IMG]

    Do I turn the eggs for the last time tonight, or at the end of the day tomorrow?

    The LG instructions say to remove the second air vent plug. I also know it's time to up the humidity.

    I always turn mine one last time on the evening of day 18, not before. Either by hand or if I use the turner, it's stopped and taken out. Candle again and bump the humidity up. Clost the bator and sit on your hands.
