    I accidently uplugged my lil giant egg turner on Thurs and today is Tuesday
    They were starting to turn out at 1 and 2 weeks out.
    Now I dont know whether to scrap all 40 or just start over?
    They dont look like chickens when I candled them.

    I'd go ahead and let them finish. Some have had eggs hatch with no turning the whole time. Granted the rate was lower.

    If you are under day 18, yes, put them in the turner. If they are already on day 18, go as usual.
