When to remove egg turner - Page 2

post #11 of 14

Would it hurt to remove the egg turner on Day 17?  I have my incubator in my Middle School classroom.  I work quite a bit away from my school.  I was wondering if I could remove it tomorrow at the end of the day, instead of having to drive over here on Saturday to do it?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Not sure what you decided, but in my opinion I would remove them on day 17 as opposed to day 20. Therefore they can have an easier time pipping. I hope you have a successful hatch!!!big_smile.png

HELP HELP!!!! This is my second time incubating and my first hatch was more sussecsfull at this point!!! I have 6 eggs left out of 18 and we are on day 19. I removed them from the egg turner yesterday and bumped the humidity up to 65% I have the farm innovators 4200 circulated air incubator with an automatic turner. Last time I hatched at this time exactly they were all rocking around, what happened why aren't these?!?!?! I understand no chirps yet they may have not pipped internally yet but why no rocking? I'm so scared why do I do? There is one that is moving (#18) but it's not rocking. It's vibrating. It's. It the incubator because it stops and starts but it is unusual. HELP!!!
