    I'd turn them at least twicw a day and better to turn them 3 or 4 times a day until within a couple of days of hatching.

    When I bought my first button eggs I was told to wait 36 hours to turn them for the first time. They are so small and fragile. If you wait that gives them time to get growing without being shook up. I had 10 out of 22 hatch from that set. Even with my regular eggs I always wait 24 hours before turning for the first time.
