    i am using a still air incubator and i have an automatic turner . i have read that the eggs are supposed to be turned 3 times a day and then i read that the eggs should be facing pointy side down in an auto turner so do i turn them 3 times a day or do i leave them alone in the auto turner ?

    "turning" them means side to side with pointy end down. That's what the autoturn is for... put them in pointy side down and the turner will move side to side multiple times per day.

    Agreed. And that is a minimum of three times a day. More is better. The auto-turner will take care of that.
