    OK new to using a automatic Turner. I have hatched one egg in a non automatic Turner. Well I got a automatic Turner incubator as a gift but I have some eggs that need to stop turning and some still have a while until they need to stop turning how. Should I go about this ?

    Do you still have the other incubator you can set up to put the ones that are ready for lock down into?

    When you are using an autoturner, it is best not do to a staggered hatch.

    Yes I still have it I actually went down the road to a farm the lady there raises ducks and chickens my other incu. That isn't auto turned was to small for the eggs that needed to be on lock down so shes letting me borrow hers since she's not using it . We got it all set up .. I had eggs in the auto and I went out of town for. A few days and my dad got some more and put in and didn't tell me till I got home I think I have the problem fixed. :D
