    I don't hatch chickens, but my ducks are constantly rolling their eggs and they hatch fine. I've also heard of people forgetting to turn off their turners and the babies hatch!!

    However, that being said... Mama Broodies are sometimes nervous, and the more we interfere, the more likely that Mama will have issues during hatch.
