    i got some eggs today in the mail i slowly brought them up to temp today but havent touched them how long should i wait before i start turning them?
  2. that's entirely up to you

    I have let eggs sit for 24 hours and I have also put eggs straight into the incubator with the turner on

    my hatch rates DID NOT increase by letting them sit
