    I've recently had a staggered hatch with chicks hatching over 8 days. I stopped turning all of them as soon as the first chick pipped and they were all fine in spite of the higher humidity and not getting turned. Turning is very important during the early stages, the first 14 days, but at this late stage it really doesn't matter if you can't turn them.
