    I put eggs in bator the 12th!

    I had a death in the family!

    So I just bought & put eggs in turner they are back in bator.
    (I hope this is not going to be a problem)

    I am going Saturday & will be back Sunday night should I add extra water for humidity?

    Sorry you've had a loss in your family.

    But your eggs should be fine. Just check them before you head out, adding a little water as needed. I really don't think you would need 'extra'
    water for 2 days....

    I am so sorry for your loss of a family member. :aww

    Adding the turner is not a problem..the only concern I would have is the possibility of an initial climb in temperature as the turner will throw more heat. Keep an eye on that over the next day or so and you should be fine. If you will only be gone a couple days, I wouldn't put any more water in that you usually do when you fill up. If it will be longer, add extra so there is no chance of the water tray drying out completely before your return. I am sure the eggs will be just fine.
