    So, my Brinsea Mini Advance finally showed up yesterday. [​IMG]

    I got it up and running immediately. All looked well so I set some eggs tonight. [​IMG] I am so excited.

    But I have a question. How often should the eggs be turned?? I couldn't find any info on that. It's currently set for 30 minutes but I would really like to be sure. [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    I think you only turn them 3 times a day...

    Have fun hatching![​IMG]

    I have mine set to turn every 45 minutes. (three times a day is MINIMUM)

    I also set the "angle" at 15 so it turns them slightly longer.
