My bator will arrive on Friday (Genesis 1588 w/ turner) and I am clueless as to what steps I need to take to get it ready to hatch some chicks! I will have eggs to put in it by Sat. Some are being shipped a short distance and some I am picking up on Friday which are being collected as we speak. I know I need to have my bator plugged in for at least 24 hours before I put the eggs in to make sure temps are right, but what else needs to be done? Do I need to clean the bator first or not, since it will be new? How long do I need to let the eggs sit/rest before I put them into the bator and which side needs to be up? Will the bator come with good instructions on how to do this??? GAAHH! I'm panicking here!!! I don't like to go into things blind and I would like to get some pointers ahead of time so I can be prepared! Thanks to all in advance for your advice!
