    I had a emergency this morning i had a first week quiter that looked like it was in the second week stage crack i guess from the shell being too thin and it cracked right in the middle and oh god the smell so i had to transfer my eggs over to the LG still air hatcher that i had prepping up for temp and humility at 101 and the humidity is 54% but im trying to get it to 60% and i had 11 eggs that were suppose to stop turning tomorrow but that stink smell is still in the bator and i don't want to put them back in there with that noxious smell i was going to put a cup of apple-cider vinegar on top of the turner to draw out that smell cause im setting more eggs on the 7&8th this week and i dont need that deadly smell lingering in there with them

    They should be ok with an extra day of no turning.
