    I'm using an incubator for the first time. I bought the LG about 3 weeks ago set it up and also bought the automatic egg turner also. Now its the 20th day and they should hatch tomorrow on the 21st, my question is do i leave the eggs on the turner or should i take the turner off and just leave the eggs on the metal wiring sheet? I also already unplugged the egg turner. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    You do want to take them out of the turner and it's fine to just lay them on the wire thingy.
    Have fun!!!!!!!

    I take them out of the turner, I have had them get stuck. then I put them in egg cartons big end up. It is easier to clean up and keeps them from playing soccer with their siblings

    You should reread the directions. Eggs should be taken out of the turner on day 18.
