    I decided to hatch eggs as a class project for my Kindergarten students. We just came back to school from our Easter break and I found my egg turner had stopped working sometime over our 5 days off. I bought a new egg turner today and put the eggs back into the incubator, but I'm worried that the chicks will be stuck to the side of the egg shell when they hatch. Should I disgard these eggs and start again?

    How long had they been in?

    I'd give it a shot.

    School doesn't end till the end of May right?

    Today is day 8. I hope they will be okay. I just don't want them to hatch and be deformed.
