    OK, I apologize ahead of time, because I'm sure this has been asked a million times before, but I'm tired and I can't seem to find it...[​IMG] We got some Serama eggs at the Ohio National over the weekend, and they are now in the incubator....I got how often to turn the eggs, but I don't understand how far to turn them....90 or 180 degrees? Should they be turned different directions, or rolled the same way each time etc...

    Thanks all...with some luck, I'll have some pics in 21 days....[​IMG]

    Write an X on one side and an O on the other, then turn them over each time (180 degrees). It should be done 3 times a day.

    Thanks for the quick answer...I can go to bed now and pass out till 5:00am...[​IMG] I had the eggs marked, so I guess having marks on both sides makes more sense now...thanks!!

    Roll back an forth. Do not turn them the same direction every time. Also try not to flip them end over end.
