    I have a egg turning question.

    I don't have a turner so I'm turning mine by hand every 4 hours.
    What about at night, I'm I suppossed to get up at night every 4 hours and turn them?

    I turned them three times per day, or you could do 5. You don't have to turn at night - get SOME sleep - you'll need it come day 19-20!

    If you do an odd number, then every other night for the long stretch without turning, you have alternate sides up. With an even number of turns, then the same side would be up every night for the long stretch.

    Did that make sense?? I was up waaayyy too early this am...
