    Much better problem than say: fan going out and temperature climbing to 110 degrees( I had 2 live out of 400eggs). Fan burning up and melting the lid and smoking eggs and temperature falling to 70 degrees(0/40). Keep turning them and what you get will likely be a successful hatch. We all do our best with the situation at hand!

    I tried a hatch once where I didn't turn them at all. I ended up with about a 50% hatch rate.
