    So tomorrow was supposed to be lockdown. I candled my eggs, and one of the was trying to get through the air cell. it was still in the turner, so immediately went into lockdown. I was just wondering, do you think he will make it? I know you are not supposed to open the incubator until they hatch, but I had to get it out of the turner. Do you think it will be okay??????

    I'm pretty sure he'll be fine! On my first hatch it got to be day 23 and I candled one of my eggs and he was internally pipped and he hatched just fine!

    Okay, that makes me feel a little better. I just can't believe it was trying to hatch in the turner.
