    I am using a plastic container that has a lid, I know the temp needs to be 99-101, and the humidity needs to be 55%?
    I have them in a container and they are marked for turning, I'm using the bulb heat that I used when I have baby chickens. I have read they need to be turned and misted
    How many times a day for turning?
    How many times should I mist them?
    How long does it take to hatch?
    Posting a pic of the container...should I keep it closed all the time?

    Any helped will be great...I know I'm probably forgetting something
