    We candled on day 8, of 36, 6 definite clears, 6 more iffy ones, but two eggs were firmly glued to the turner! We tried pouring a little warm water around them, but not a bit of give. How do you unglue an egg to move it to the hatcher?

    I had this happen to me for the first time the other day, I think it means the egg had gone bad and started to leak and then glued itself. I couldn't remove it, so I removed that single rack from the turner, and had to pop the egg out, it broke in the process and was a non-starter.

    Hopefully your eggs aren't growing, probably not I would think. Also I wouldn't try to remove them in the bator, because if they do open, you don't want it with your other eggs.

    Let me know how it turns out for you.

    Kinda sounds like they are leaking and that's what made them get stuck....

    remove all the eggs that are free

    than bring the turner rack to the kitchen sink and run warm water on the stuck area , it will take few minutes to get free
