    Thinking I'll have the funds to add an egg turner to my incubator around day 12 or 13. I've only got 8 eggs set, so it shouldn't be too time consuming. Do you think I could pull it off without damaging the eggs?

    Quote:yeah you can add a turner.. just keep in mind that if the motor for it is inside the incubator you will need to keep an eye on your temps and possibly make a few adjustments in that regard because most turner motors I have seen emit a certain amount of heat.. not knowing what kind of bator you have and what kind of thermostat.. I figured I would toss in that heads up
