So, here's the deal. I have decided I want to take the plunge & get chickens. I have also convinced my kids (8, 7, 2) that they want them too I am a teacher & just cannot pass up the learning opportunity so we are starting from eggs. The plan is to get some eggs from Trader Joes to see how it all works before getting the eggs we really want. I have a few questions first. We built the styrofoam ice chest incubator. Do we need an egg turner? I know my kids would be super thrilled to do it. Also do you just lean them from 1 side to another or completely flip them? Do I lay them on their side right on the hardware cloth or upright with an egg carton? If we open it quickly to turn them will it mess up the temp & humidity too bad? I've research a lot, but I'm a total newbie so any info would be great!
