    Do I have to evenly space the time when I turn the eggs? Is it okay if I turn the eggs whenever I have time if I still do it 2-3 times a day? Or do I have to wake up in the middle of the night to turn some eggs. I can't afford to get an auto turner right now. Thanks

    By no means do you need to alter your schedule in order to turn eggs. Turn them whenever you think about it or whenever you walk by the bator. It's far from an exact process.
