I take the autoturner out and lay the eggs on their sides. Two reasons for taking it out. That way the chicks don't have some place they can catch their legs or wings while they are crawling around. Not that it happens a lot but it could maybe happen.
The main reason I take it out is clean-up. They make a mess when they hatch. If I take the turner out they don't mess it up, especially around the electronics.
This is what I use to add water through a vent hole during lockdown. The straws are those accordion ones. With just a little effort I can get to any reservoir I need to.
