Before you put them in bator, you were suppose to:

1. put them in a fairly cool room, in an egg carton, pointy part of egg up
2. you should leave egg there for at least a day(?), tilting the egg carton once and a while to keep yolk from sticking to sides of shell...eggs can go up to 7 days without going in bator, and can still hatch. But no longer than 7 days!
3. put eggs in incubator and turn for at least 3-4 times a day...the more, the better

Good luck!

What I was trying say, if your storing eggs, they don't have to be turned for 11 days, even then the hatch rate would be low...
