    Hey guys, I have a homemade incubator that I haven't tried yet but I don't know where to get an automatic egg turner, (i know u can get one off ebay but no people are selling them in australia so the price and p&h will be over $100! to get to me) I'm not willing to pay that much, Can anyone find someone selling one on ebay in australia?) If nothing progresses, how many times do I turn the eggs and what should my schedule be, what time should I do it? Thanks

    I use auto turner, but I've heard they turn them 3 times a day buy hand .. every 6 to 8 hrs. (maybe someone else has a better plan???)

    The auto turners are available from any tractor supply store and most larger farm supply stores .
