What breed are you hatching? You can stop turning the eggs 3 days before the expected hatch date. You can either turn your turners off. You can lay some sort of non skid material over the turners and put the eggs back on top of this material to hatch. Or you can move all the eggs to a hatcher. All this is done 3 days before the expected hatch date.

Ok will it hurt to go 15 days with the turner

It wont make a lot of difference... I have lost track of time and had several hatch while riding the turner like a teeter totter..... They were fine but kinda pissy when they rolled out and fell to the bottom of the cabinet bator! ;-)
