HELP with lock-down

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Ok, so my eggs were supposed to go on lock-down tomorrow, however, one of the little chicks decided to throw me a curve ball and pipped this morning, fully hatched about 10:30 tonight ... my question is this ... I never got to take out the auto turner (I did unplug it), now that the chick is fully hatched and no other eggs are pipping (they should have hatched this coming Monday - I had a temp spike and was told this may cause them to hatch early)... should I remove the turner or leave it in? If I remove it will I need to increase the temp to compensate?

Yes, take it out. Do it as quickly as you can, and make sure the humidity stays up.
