    Someone else here did that and ended up with a ok hatch. I think since it's so early in development it's ok

    You should be fine. My turner & incubator were accidentally unplugged at the beginning of my current hatch. I was worried I wouldn't have any eggs to make it, but as of today 5 have just hatched & several more have pipped.
