The automatic egg turner in our Hovabator 1588 is NOT turning the eggs at all and this is a confirmed fact!
Has anyone had this problem before? If so what did you do to fix it??
Is it possible to save our eggs this late in the game?
Some facts about this hatch:
This is our first time incubating eggs besides when I did it as a teen.
We had the incubator up and running and settled for an entire week before putting eggs in.
We have had the temp at 99.5 and fluxing from 99.3-100.3
We have the humidifier with the Humidity level ranging from about 45-52
I received the shipped eggs last Saturday and let them sit from Saturday till Tuesday evening in hopes that they would settle.
Upon candleing, we had one egg with a detached air cell (which we disposed of), about 17 eggs with basically unharmed air cells, and the rest with distorted air cells.
Upon realizing that the turner isn't working, I just hand turned the eggs myself.
Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated! It may sound crazy, but our whole family feels like these precious eggs are our chicken children. Hopefully this isn't all lost yet!
