    So i have a question i have 12 eggs due to come off the turner today but have 10 that are 2 days later then the first 12 what i was wondering is can i take them all off the turner and just go ahead and pull them all and can i do that since we have two days that they should still be being turned will it hurt them to sit the last 2 extra days.
    and if i put them in a carton to hatch i keep the ends up that have been up the whole time correct.

    The people that carton hatch keep the big end up... Going in to lockdown early wont hurt those 2.

    Yep. Big end up. Just like the entire incubation process...

    Also, I would continue to turn the eggs for at least another day...
