I set my eggs last night at 7pm. When can I open the bator to turn them? Ive been waiting to get an answer but no one has answered this. Help!! I thought I read let them sit 24 hours. Help before its too late!!
No but I think I read somewhere that I shouldnt open the bator for about 24 hours after setting them. Its only been since 7pm last night. Im just really worried that they might stick if I dont turn them, and cant find info on this. They are finally up to the bator temp and Id hate to disturb them.
Quote:yes that is ok to use.. how are you turning them? I know, by hand..
but are you tilting the whole carton? If you are tilting the whole carton, you can do that without opening the bator.. just block up one side of the whole bator, and then put the block under the other side at turning time.. at first excess water might run out so set a towel under the bator to soak it up.. then just add water as needed..
Oh I never thought of just tilting the whole thing. Thank you for letting me know that. Yeah Id be worried about the water running down. I do have a towel under it already though. I have an egg turner coming any day now but yesterday I read in the LG instructions that they cant be used with Duck eggs?! This is just my luck.
I do have something else to worry about, my 2 year old wanting Mommy to play! Play now, eggs later!
However right now I just need to know if my eggies are ok. So he is here helping me type.
