How many times a day should you hand turn eggs?
Now I have to figure out how to turn all 45 eggs as fast as possible so they don't get cold!
I have one (Out of 12) that is due to hatch on Monday and the rest have till the 26th. So I took the turner out for the one Kentucky Speck leaving my Marans having to be hand turned. I hope they will still be alright with the incubator being opened 3 times a day.
Remember, when the hen is setting on eggs she will get off the nest to eat and drink. So you really do not have to do a rush for turning your eggs, just a nice pace.
Or put them in a carton and prop up each end back and forth...that's faster!
I made a turner because I'm clutsy and would probably break an egg trying to quickly hand turn...
