    I am going to set eggs in my homemade bator, no turner & I am going to tilt the bator instead of opening it 3 times a day, will this be enough angle for the eggs ?[​IMG]

    If your temp and humidity remain the same it should be fine. Good luck.

    Are they in cartons?

    You really don't want the eggs banging against each other.

    It's OK to open the incubator for turning, adding water &/or candling.

    The eggs do not start to cool down right away. You can saftely have

    the 'bator open for 15-20 minutes per day.

    Good luck!
