Hi all...I have a question. I have to leave this weekend Thursday night and will be gone till Monday. I have my first batch of eggs in the incubator now. I set them on the 13th so Monday is day 18 and I will be back sometime Monday afternoon to get them ready for hatching. I dont have a turner and have been doing it by hand, so since I will be completely not here for three days, I have a little problem. I have thought about just going and buying the turner but I just dont know if I will have the time to travel all the way to the store to get it before I leave. If I have someone come once a day to turn them and check on them, will that be enough for those three days I wont be here at all? What if they forget to turn them at all? There are only 13 eggs but I have candled them all and they all seem viable so far as I can see. I even got to see movement in a few of them with my little homemade candler so Im very excited to get to hatch day. I would hate to loose them now. So glad to have found this forum...Im just getting into chickens but they are so much fun!
