    I was looking at my chicken/duck eggs today and started to think about having to exercising the embryo and how you turn the eggs while letting them rest at least 24 hours. Wondering if anyone sticks them in their bator with the bator unplugged with the turner going. But thinking the reason for not doing it would be to let the bator get up to temp and stabilize before adding the eggs. But using a bator like a Brinsea that gets to a temp and stabilizes quickly so thinking it could work. I will hand turn them right now before setting but just thought of this for an idea for future.
