    Just check on here in this section of the forum for the hatch-a-long threads..

    you can also check the two links in my signature

    i turn mine 5 times a day.. others only turn them 3 times..

    and yes.. they do need to be turned about the same time a day.. it won't hurt if you are off by a half hour or so here and there (we do realize you have a life).. but you do need to remember to turn them as close to the same time every day as possible.

    Incubating the eggs is a commitment.. but so is raising and caring for the emus.. [​IMG]
