hello...I just got my new Brinsea and the default turner time is set at 45 minutes...I can move it to 3 hours.
45 minutes seems way to quick compared to my other turners?

Anyone thoughts, experiences? Thanks

There have been studies done concerning turning frequency and incubation. The studies showed that the more frequently the eggs were turned the better it was for them. I have an old GQF cabinet incubator and it turns the eggs every three hours. The new models turn the eggs once per hour. Hens do not wait 3 hours to turn the eggs they are sitting on.

I would leave it set at 45 minutes.
