which direction to rotate the eggs?

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by Ocala RIR, Jan 28, 2015.

  1. My question rotate one direction only in 180 degree? Another is 180 back and forth? I am in day 11 with veins in the eggs from candling.

    If you are manually turning, with a pencil, put an x on one side and an o on the other. Then when you turn turn all the x's to o's and you know that you've turned them all and they are all on the opposite side. I don't think it matters if you roll back or forth or both as long as they are getting the movement so they don't "stick" to one side of the egg. Not sure if that helped, but that's all I got. :)

    Googling the question says the same thing. Back and forth is best.
