    I have an automatic turner for my bator but was shipped to many eggs to fit in it and couldn't pick any to get rid of. If I candle them and find enough bad ones can I put the turner in? My concern is that the engine will add enough heat to throw my temperature wacky.

    Quote:the turner shouldn't mess up the temp

    you have a homemade bator or store baught?

    i have store baught wit a auto turner and it doesn't bother with the temp

    and yes only when you candle and you find bads one s an then if you can put the turner in i would but some might say don't since the eggs are already been on there sides.. but my dad did that once and his eggs still hatch
