    Ok so I set my eggs on Saturday and JUST realized I had forgotten to plug in that dang turner!!!! So technically today is the 3rd day. Did I do irreparable damage? Or is there a chance my eggs will be ok?

    There was a study by I think the University of Nebraska that claims there is no need to turn eggs for the first 10 days. I don't do it myself but if it is true you don't have anything to worry about.

    Yeah they are fine.

    I had 2 different hatch dates going on in my incubator this past Saturday and Monday. The ones due to hatch on Monday didn't get turned 2 extra days since I had to put them on lockdown with the ones that were to hatch Saturday and the ones that hatched Monday was just fine. So being as it is still early I wouldn't even worry about it.
