    twice a day but everyone recommends at least 3 times. and i have stopped at day 16 (chickens) but again it is recommended to turn until day 18 . good luck on your hatch.

    Everything I have read says at least 3 x's more is better but to always turn an odd number of times a day so that the egg isn't left on the same side each night (the longest amount of time they are sitting).
