    This is a question I've always had. I'm looking into buying an incubator (Brinsea mini ECO) and I was wondering if anyone had any videos or explanations on how exactly you're supposed to turn the eggs. Sorry for the newbiesh question! :p

    Hello! The eggs will lay flat on the bottom of the incubator. Mark the top of the egg with an "X" and then turn it over and mark the bottom with an "O". When you turn them you can either gently roll them so the opposite side is up or lift them up and yutn them over. Three times a day is good. I hope that helps.
