Here are my chicken eggs at day 16. Should I stop turning them now that they are wobbling?
Turning is only crucial until day 14. By day 14 they are pretty much fully developed and don't need to be turned if you want to stop now. The rocking you can see now is them getting into position for hatch. I've stopped turning day 17 before with no ill affects. I just try to stick to day 18 so that lockdown is done all on the same day.
Good luck with your hatch
Thanks for the response. I have turned off the turner and will keep an eye out. I'm running the incubator dry so I will add water on day 18, unless I hear cheeping, I will also candle them tomorrow and make sure there is no external pipping.
