    They may still be ok- you could lose some, but for the most part I don't think a day or two is a complete death sentence. At that point they should be fairly well developed, and probably won't be sticking/growing into the sides of the egg (which is basically why you turn them, to keep it from sticking to one side and dying).

    okay thanks is it okay to canlde them every 6 hours or so and see whats up or would it be best to let them go because of humidity reasons in the incubator and hope for the best?
