    Lock down is in 2 days. I notice that my turner was the same way every time in looked in the incubator. But stupid me didnt notice that it wasnt plug in. I know it was plugged in at the start. Put someone needed the plug and unplugged it and didnt plugged it back in. I think this happened in the first week. So they were unpluged for almost 2 weeks now. I have never had this happened to me before.
    So now what do i expected to happened?. Will they still hatch ok. Or ????

    Read a study that said they got good hatches with no turning at all... I tried hatching several batches without turning the first week an still did ok. Had more curled toes than normal but no big change.

    I have done that before. I do staggered hatches in a cabinet incubator. One day I put some eggs in and used the manual switch to tilt the trays. I left the switch in the manual position and after a few days started thinking that the trays were always tilted to the same side whenever I checked the incubator, so I decided to manually flip the trays over to the other side and discovered I had forgot to put the switch back in the auto turn position. I still had a good hatch. I was a couple of weeks into incubating some of the eggs.
