I hate hand turning eggs. I don't mind doing it so much it's the fear of dropping them. My bator bearly holds 9 eggs, and it's really hard to get my fingers around them to turn them. I'm afraid I'm going to drop one and crack all the eggs under it. Must get auto egg turner, then I can maybe justify a larger bator to put it in.... BTW, it's only day 6 I candle tomorrow, and I'm so NERVOUS!!
