    Ok, very first hatch in my hova-bator. I have an egg turner but I had read somewhere not to turn it on until the second day. Is that correct or am I dreaming? Eggs just set about I hour ago. Wish me luck!![​IMG]

    I have mine going when I set them in the bator. Remember to plug the turner and bator into a surge protector.
