    Hello All,

    Just had a quick question on when exactly do you remove the auto turner. Is it at the beginning of the 18th day or the end ?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    I think the main thing is to make sure you have it out before they start hatching.
    I would think beginning or the end of the 18th day would not matter, as long as you have your days counted right.

    I forgot mine and didn't take it out until last night, I had chicks when I got up this morning. That was cutting it a little too close! [​IMG]
