    Turn them 4-5 times a day. 2-3 if the very least.
    Mark an O on one side of the egg and an X on the other. WITH A PENCIL ONLY
    example- In the morning turn all the eggs on the O and come back a few hours later and turn them all on the X. then repeat.

    this way you know you made a full turn.
    Flip to the other side. Do not flip them long ways. (Dont flip the big end over the small end)
