    My guinea eggs should be here in a day or two. I have a couple of questions

    1. I set the incubator up today, turned it on to make sure it's all working. Should I leave it on and heated until I get the eggs? Or do I turn it off for now and turn it back on when I'm ready to put the eggs in?

    2. How often do you have to add water? I have the automatic egg turner, so will I have to remove it and the eggs to add the water?

    Any help appreciated for this novice.

    Leave it on and heated, add water whenever your humidity drops. [​IMG]

    To add water while the turner is in it, just remove an egg and pour through the hole of the egg cup. Set the egg back in when done. [​IMG]

    I add water to mine with a turkey bastor(sp) you don't have to take the turner out, there is room to get the turkey bastor in.
