    K I'm giving in, I'm going to make a bator. But I don't think I'm going to make a automatic turner... at least not yet.

    So here's the question:
    On day 18 it'll be lock down right... so do the eggs not need to be turned anymore? Or is this the major reason why people get the automatic turner, so they can continue to be turned/tilted after lock down?

    No turning after day 18. The chicks are getting into position to hatch.
