    I picked up eggs to incubate. my small incubator usually fits 9, but these are large eggs. I fit 8 in there but noticed by the second day that the automatic turner wasn't working. I figured out that the eggs were too tight in there for it to turn. I remedied be problem and they're turning now, but my question is the first two days of incubation the eggs weren't turned, will they be okay?
