    I have been turning the two chicken eggs in the bator more than 4 times daily, but that was over the weekend when i put them in. Now, I have school again, so I can't really turn them as much. I turn them before I leave for school in the morning, and when i get back(past lunch time) And then i will turn them later tonight around supper time and again before i go to bed.
    will this affect the eggs in a bad way? I am worried that not turning them all day until the evening will kill them.[​IMG] any advise?
    Thanks![​IMG]

    They should be fine, 3 times a day is plenty.
