    It is day 17 and one of the eggs is moving. Would you take the turner out??? Or would you wait until tomorrow... when it is supposed to come out. I don't want go home to find it hatched tomorrow... incubator is at school.

    I usually stop turning on day 17 but in lockdown on day 18. So if it was me, Yes, i would take out the turner but don't raise humidity until tomorrow for lockdown..
