    You will want turn it on, and it should set it's self. If it doesn't, it needs to be set at 100 degrees. You need to have it set up and the temperature stable, before putting the eggs in it. I would put the turner in it if you have one. I wouldn't turn it on until the eggs go in. Don't forget to add water for humidity, and you need a hygrometer. Even if the incubator has this built in you should a separate temperature and hygrometer in the bator.

    Read the instructions and have fun.
