    I got a thermo/hydro meter at Walmart for $7. It is the best investment I've ever bought. Also, just make sure when you tn the smaller end of the egg is tipped down more than the bigger part of the egg. And your schedule for turning sounds good to me. As long as their gettng turned an odd amount of times a day so their not on the same side every night sounds good. GOOD LUCK!!![​IMG]

    I have never used a schedule for turning my eggs but I do try to space it out by a few hours.

    Ex.

    Turn 1- When I get up
    Turn 2- After lunch
    Turn 3- Before I go to bed
