    Isn't it bad to hatch eggs right off of the turners like that?

    I had silky mix chickens, some didn't have the blue skin, some had an extra toe, and some didn't have silky feathers, but they all had the pom on the head.

    You just gotta watch to make sure they dont fall in an egg hole head first. I have better hatches using the turner as taking it out and laying them on there sides sucks the moisture out of them and chills them as its cooer on the bottom. :)
