I took my eggs from the turner a week too early. When I realized my mistake, I put the turner back in the incubator. I took them out Tuesday afternoon and put the turner back in at noon today. My question is: How bad did I mess up?

I would suggest you watch closely at hatch for problems but you know stuff happens it shouldn't be to bad as long as they were warm

Thanks, I was afraid I had killed this set. I will keep a close eye on them when it gets closer to hatch time.

Yeah I wouldn't worry. I've heard of people not being able to tend to their eggs for a week and the chicks still hatched like normal. Just 2 days ago I had an issue with my incubator heating and the eggs were only at 85 degrees F for 14 hours, then 65 for 2. I just candled them today at day 5 and 15/15 are fertile and growing!!
