    I have some seramas in the incubator getting ready to hatch it is day 15 and I am not sure to quit turning them on the 18th day or the 16th day. Can someone who is experienced with serama hatching tell me what to do? [​IMG]

    I didn't know about the time difference when I did mine, and on day 18 I stopped turning.....day 19, he (only one who hatched) came out, one the small end. So, I would say, stop turning day 16. That is what I plan on doing next time... good luck, they sure are cute little devils. [​IMG]
