    I attempted incubating eggs years ago and failed and decided to have another go based on what information i remembered from last time. Now i am back at it again and wanted to have any possible pointers on what to do to incubate the eggs? From start to finish? Thank you for the time

    I am also using a little giant incubator with the automatic egg turner

    Don't put your chicks on news paper if they hatch it pulls there leg muscles and stops them for walking.
    And turn them two times a day at the same time each time you turn them.

    Great reading articles there from Aphrael for you. My top tip would be a good thermometer and hygrometer. And to make sure when you set your in the turner they are pointy end down.

    Good luck :fl
