    Well, I received my eggs on Tuesday. I had my bator all ready to go and placed the eggs in. I realized that my wires were all tangled and unplugged them and untangled them. I plugged the bator up and there it has been running.....without the turner being plugged in!!! [​IMG] It has been running since 4:00 Tuesday afternoon. What do you think my think that my chances are that any of them will hatch? [​IMG]

    Could be good. Some people don't turn their eggs at all.

    Good luck [​IMG]

    I know someone that thought you were supposed to turn them 3 times a week and that's exactly what he did. He had a 100% hatch!
