    Turn them on day 18, then leave them alone. :) Good luck! Can't wait for pics.


    OH, I'd only up the humidity to 65%-70%. 75% seems a bit high.

    Oh ok. I got it. She said turn them, and then leave them alone, meaning like turning them in the morning, and then leave them alone.... Oops.

    So if you have an automatic turner then what does one do? Or are you supposed to continue to turn them end for end even if you have an egg turner? I'm new to this!

    I believe you are supposed to take out the turner on day 18. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. [​IMG]
