    Since you only have 3 more days to hand turn, you might just leave well enough alone for this hatch and use the tuner for the next bunch.

    If you decide to move them into the turner now, just move quickly so you don't cool them more than you absolutely have to. Set them with the large end (air cell end) up.

    Then, on end of day 18 you'll want to take them out of the turner for hatching and stop turning them.
