    Ok I'm trying to learn al I can bout Incubating, Turning and hatching chicks in a incubator. I'd love to try this sometime. mabey over the spring.
    but when it says to turn them. I"m confused (im a visual learner).
    if i place the eggs in a bator. up and down instead of on their side like mommy dose. what direction is it turned.. end to end?
    if it's on it's side do you just Roll it a little or just put a X on one side (lets say the top) and when I turn it.. but the X on the bottom.?

    Wish there was a video out there showin how to turn. from both the Layin on it's side or End to End.
    I realy want to try this. but I do not want to fail at it either. beacuse I did not fully understand the "Turning"
