    Long story short, I think the wireless temp thing got stuck under the egg turner and it couldn't turn for like 3-4 days? I just candled them and 35 out of 48 are still alive. I saw many moving so they are alive as far as I know. Will the little buggers be ok?

    Are you saying that the turner wasn't working for 3 - 4 days, but the temp and humidity were both fine? If that's the case, they should be fine. What days was the turner not working?

    nothing to worry about just see it as a warning that the wireless thing needs to be put some where else.
