Don't worry. They are only 2 days apart. The ones due on the 5th will no longer need to be turned.I dont like doing this but ive got myself in a pickle because ive got a staggered hatch rate!
Ive got 2 hatching on the 3rd of march and 3 hatching on the 5th, i have a manual incubator!
I'm going to have to open the bator to turn the eggs that aren't in lockdown while 2 will be in lockdown i dont want to shrink the lockdown chicks in the membrane but i also have to turn the other eggs! Any help would be appreciated Thankyou
The first week is most important for turning, second week turning is good but the third week the allantois and chorion membranes are already formed and turning isn't necessary.
I screwed up when I set eggs yesterday and didn't turn the turner on. Luckily I thought about it this morning and caught my mistake after only 15 hours.
