How do I use Arduino to make 5 servos move at random intervals? Answered

Hey thanks for taking the time to help me out.

I am unsure of which inserts I should connect 5 servos to on the arduino board, would I need a breadbox for this? I understand the usb provides only 5 volts of electricity, doubtfully enough for all the servos. Would I have to connect an external power supply/ and how? Lastly,   what code would I have to write to get all 5 servos to move at random intervals with out having to manually control it my self? 

Look forward to hearing from you.

Search for instructables on "Robot arms" "animatronics" etc, and you'll soon have the info you need. There are a few on the right >>>>>

When I first started I would find the most basic tutorials to get started, so I would start with

Once you have one working, Ill let you figure out how to add a second, then 5 :)

once you have 5 servos working in this tutorial sketch, google "arduino random" to learn how to get random numbers,

and then "arduino delay" to learn about delays

That should be literally everything you need. :) have fun!
