    I have 30 eggs in an incubator with an auto turner, the style of the turner is it swings them left to right but keeping the egg verticle. It's a farm innovators. They are on day 15, on day 18 I'm not sure what to do. Am I suppose to unplug the turner and leave them like that or remove the turner from the incubator and set the eggs on heir side on the mesh of the incubator. So they hatch horizontally. Help please this is my first time?????!!!!
