    When you use an egg turner, how often do you move the eggs around in the bater to make sure they don't get to hot or cold in one spot. I moved them when I candled at 6 days, do you do it again before lockdown?

    Bump anyone have any ideas on this? I have read several times about moving the eggs to different spots in the bater during incubation. Do others do this and how often?
