    I bought one of those little yellow incubators off ebay for my daughter i plan on getting a better one soon though.. well the temp is staying up to 100 i have a little water at the bottom and i turn them twice a day but the question is when they start to hatch do i just leave them alone in there till they are out of the shell?? I have 5 eggs in there and its seems really snug in there i just have never done this before???

    I have wondered if one of those would actually work. Keep us posted and good luck.

    First-turn them at least three times a day (or any odd number above one). Second- Chup! Leave them in there till they're at /least/ semi-dry/fluffy, and THEN put them in a heated brooder :3

    Oh, is it that tiny yellow spaceship-looking one? I was GUNNA get that, but was like, TO HECK WITH IT, and built my own : D
