    Bummer! Don't know what will happen to the others and that's alot to hand turn, too. Hope you don't lose too many.

    I don't have a turner and I hand turn mine, but I've never gotten too stressed out about it if it doesn't get done everyday. I've always figured that a hen doesn't really go through and make sure every egg gets turned. I think it's more that she re-arranges them to get comfy on the nest.
