    I hand turn the eggs 3 times a day, some do 5. Odd turns helps exercise the embryo from being on one side of the yolk too long.

    If they are just rocking back and forth (Tipped 45 degrees one way and then 45 degrees the other) is that sufficient or should I lay them on thier sides and roll them over?
