    Sometimes people have decent hatch rates without turning the eggs at all. Do not despair! It might affect your hatch rate, but it shouldn't be too bad.

    I'd definitely leave them, too. Hope you have a good hatch!

    update on the eggs....the eggs in the incubator is on day 16 and there are 12 piped eggs and allot of movement in the others... so lets hope i can get all 30 to hatch.. out of 35 eggs there was only 5 that wasn't fertile. Im so exited so tomorrow morning i will remove the ones that hatched through the night. Can't wait for the morning to come

    how long were they in the incubator for, i am in lock down and was wondering when they will start to hatch.
    put the humidity up to 65%.
    out of 36 eggs i got from ebay i have 19 in lock down.
