Forgot to turn the turner back on..

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

December 5th, turned the turner off to pull a batch of eggs out of the Sportsman to put in the hatcher.

December 7th, went to turn the turner off again to pull another batch of eggs - it was still off..

 

So it's been off for 2 days. Are the remaining eggs doomed?? I have about 100 eggs in there. Kind of freaking out now.. Afraid to candle. This is the first time I've ever done this. Kicking myself!

I doubt that two days without turning will impact the success of your hatch.

even if you left the turner off for 20 days it wont affect the eggs from growing normally. What it will affect is the hatch rate as some chicks will be stuck to the inside of the egg. 2 days shouldn't be a major problem.

Drive on, you'll be fine.
