    so recently i made a incubator
    to hatch all 32 of my eggs
    but i forgot to turn them and it been like couple days already

    do you think its still already to turn them? :[ been like..maybe 1 week

    and what is the correct temperature, my old bobwhite was set at 100degree, not too hot, just warm to touch

    All You Can Do Is Try Turning Them And See How They Come Out....

    They Should All Have Development In Them Even If You Havent Been Turning --- If The Not Turning Is Going To Affect Them They Will Not Develope Fully..... So I Dont Think Breaking 1 Open Will Tell You Anything.

    Welcome to BYC Quailman. If you start turning them now they should be fine. I keep mine turned & don't have much luck but they get roughed up at the post office before I get them. I have set chicken eggs & forgot about them & still had a good hatch.

    Yeah...I wouldn't crack one. The issue with turning eggs isn't that they won't *start* to develop, it's that they will develop with deformities that you won't be able to tell at this stage in the game.

    Wait and see. Turn from now on until lockdown and hope for the best.

    Good luck!
