What smokeykk said ~
Turn them 3 times per day for the first 18 days of incubation.
After the 18th day quit turning and keep the incubator closed,
and up the humidity. If you do not turn the eggs, the embryo
will stick to the side of the eggshell and kill the baby, eventually.
Turn an odd number of times per day so that the side the egg
lays on at night changes everyday.
