    My eggs started hatching this afternoon. They should have started friday. I have an electic egg turner, was going to take eggs out of turner tonight and go into lockdown. So what do I do now remove chicks that have hatched and put in another incubator when it is warmed up, and put eggs that haven't hatched in bottom of the hova bator? Suggestions please.

    Just taker the turner out and go into lockdown a little early....... wait till they fluff up before you take them out the bator. So.... take the turner out and raise humidity to 65-70%................ you should be fine......

    Your babies should be fluffy now, have you moved them to their brooder box and gone into lockdown.

    Just curious, what breed are you hatching?
