Stephen you want to turn the eggs a different time each time you turn them and you have to be gentle the forming blood vessels are very fragile. Ken you want the fat end of the egg up and the pointy end down this will keep the air cell in the right positition in the egg and will prevent drowning of the chick if the air cell is damaged. Lara you will want to turn the eggs they need to be on a different side each time you turn this keeps the embryo from sticking to the inner membrane. Jessica the humidity and temp will vary with different incubators the best place to go and ask questions would be backyard chickens.com or go to another section of this website a lot of people seem to come here. Samwel. We turn the eggs so the embryo doesn't stick to the inner membrane. Hope this helps everyone

I don't understand pointy end down? The incubator is level, what is down? And what does it mean to "turn the egg about the pointy end".

hi I have just put my eggs in my mini incubator pointy end down. I need to turn them manually. How would you advise I do this ? Should I move them on their side or leave as they are? Confused a little!

What are the correct temperatures for the incubator temp and humidity and do you need to raise the humidity when it come time for hatching ? Xx
