    The eggs have been in the incubator for 2 days. I have them in an automatic turner.... well I was looking closely tonight wondering why I never see them turn... AAAAAA the little arm was not on the rotator so they have been in the same position for 48 hours... are they doomed?

    Other than that I have the temp and humidity perfect now... I am feeling like a failure right about now. ughh *head desk*

    Your eggs will be fine. Relax, you have corrected the problem and if fertile they will develop with no problems.

    They'll definitely be fine. When I receive shipped eggs, I usually sit them upright and not turn them whatsoever for 3-4 days. They hatch just fine!
