I'm just curious because I'm building an incubator soon. What times do you turn them? What do you use as a heat source? The eggs look OK, but could you try to tilt the larger ends a little bit? I'm building a tilt into my incubator.

Thanks for responding. Do you think a 75 watt light bulb with a dimmer in a foot by foot incubator would heat it up enough?
