    I had a chicken hen setting guinea eggs. I got the eggs as soon as she went broody, as my chickens have done a good job raising guineas so far. At day 11, the hen left t he nest. I was getting ready to move her box into a pen because another hen was going in there laying, and I didn't want the eggs disturbed.

    Now for the problem, I put the eggs in the incubator. Today, at day 22, I discovered I had not plugged in turner!!!!! I floated the eggs and saw some movement in about half of them. They went 10-11 days without turning. Is it possible for any of them to hatch? Thanks
