    I'm hatching for the first time and have 60 quail eggs in the incubator. Do I need to remove the eggs from the turning racks and put them on the wire screen, or can I just unplug the turner? I'm worried that the temp will drop too much when I remove the turner from the incubator. I'm using a Hovabator 1588 Genisis if it makes a difference. Please advise.

    Please remove the turner completely.

    It's hard for chicks to hatch when the egg is in a turner.

    On the day you lockdown, you should remove the turner. Can you imagine newborn chicks bouncing all over the place as it turns? Not very feasible.
