    I think that one of my lg egg turners is not working properly. It is working sometimes, but I think that it is hanging up in the middle. Wonder how bad this is going to affect my hatch. Think I will get a new one in the morning.

    I have no idea about egg turners, but I'll bump you, maybe someone here can give you some input.

    if the eggs are getting turned sometimes and just hung up now and then you should be fine....

    Turns out everything was fine. Ive been consistently getting an 80%-85% hatch rate and these are going to be 82% if nothing else hatches. This is day 22 and they were running about 16 hrs behind normal it seems. I am going to give them to in the morning. I have another batch that will go in the hatcher when I get home tomorrow.
