That's the question. I have to admit, I'm an auto turner newbie, but I splurged and got myself one this year! I've always just turned them by hand. Anyway, I only have one incubator, so if I take the turner out at lockdown, I'm assuming I'd have to fiddle with the temp on my incubator to get it to where its supposed to be if the eggs have to sit lower (the specs for the turner say its 3" high). I REALLY don't want to have to do that. The trays are supposed to be dishwasher safe, so I assume its okay to just leave the eggs in it? My bator is an LG with its accompanying turner. Thanks in advance!
