Hi all,
We just got a turnX 6 and it has the wetbulb in there along with the regular bulb.
Does someone have the conversion chart or link to a conversion chart for figuring the temp/humidity in those?

Also, in thinking about incubating in it I wondered if since they are on their sides laying in there, does it affect where the air cell is located? Instead of being on the big end I would think it would be on the side?

And, when you raise temp to hatch you just leave them ont heir sides and stop turning it?

Thanks for any suggestions,
Angela

Here's a link to the conversion chart, on the second page

The air cell is still in the big end of the egg. I don't have a TurnX but I have an R-COM that lays the eggs on their sides too. When it's time to stop turning, you can just leave them as they are.

Hi,
Thanks a million!

So its fairly easy to use as both incubator then stop turning lid and go right to hatcher.

Do you think it would hurt eggs who have been in a turner to move them to it and lay them on their sides?
Just didn't want to drown anyone


Thank you again,
Angela

I don't know for sure, but I don't see why it should hurt them. They get shuffled around in a nest, so i'd think it would be fine to lay them flat.
