Hi country11187! Welcome to this wonderful website!

It will not hurt to put the 2 week old eggs in the turner. The change in position will

do no damage at all.


- Be sure to put the eggs in the turner with the pointy end of the egg facing downwards.
- Be sure to unplug and remove the turner on the 18th day of incubation

Hi country11187, won't hurt them at all. Just be easy with them and don't jar them around too much, and also remember to put the pointy end down.

Good Luck!!!

Fat end up with the eggs but it should all be ok. I have had best results taking them out of the turner for lock down too!

actually, it might be a GOOD idea!! putting the eggs upright in the turner helps them get into the position for hatching. i believe hand turning is the best to do when the egg is young, and using a turner is best for the later days. make sure you have the pointy end downwards!! and take it out for lockdown!!

oh, and

I agree with the other posts. at day 18 or 19 take the eggs back out of the turner and DON"T touch them and let them hatch. Good luck and have fun!!!
