    I have a new incubator and I'm going to hatch some chicks. How much time should there be between turns with the automatic egg turner? It sets the delay between turns. The range is 30-180 minutes between turns. Thanks

    I would set it somewhere in the middle, 30 mins seems a bit much to me, the minimum is three times per day so you can even go to the max and it would be perfectly fine.
