    I was wondering if yall have had better chances with hatch rates by using a turner, or marking on one side and turning them twice a day. the last batch I set there was about forty eggs only seven hatched, I used a turner, kept water in there and the temp stayed the same. I have heard different stories from people about which works better but I havent tried turning them by hand yet. Thanks for any help
