3 Days left!!! Unplug turner or remove it???

    I have a few duck and guinea eggs that are ready to come out of the turner, I have seen many people hatching eggs in cartons with great success and now im just wondering if i should pull the turner out and lay the eggs on their sides or straighten up the eggs in the turner and just unplug it?

    Any suggestions?

    I'd remove it-too many ways for babies to get stuck down in that turner. It's not exactly like a carton. They could get all twisted up in the parts and maybe even break a leg in there.
