    The more times you can turn them the better. But make sure it's an odd number of times so they stay on opposite sides the longest. As for the moisture it depends. A lot of people dry incubate ( add no water) until hatching. But some people add extra water throughout incubation. Here's what I do: I keep humidity at 30% during incubation and 65% at hatching.
    Hope this helps.
