    Well Like the title says I forgot to turn the turner on for about a day when I set the eggs. It was day one but am I going to have problems? I am pretty new at hatching so I thought I would ask.

    They'll be fine.
    I wouldn't have started turning until today, anyway. I don't turn on "day 1".

    Sweet I wont worry at all about it then. I was a bit concerened but now it wont cross my mind at all. Thanks all right now I am incubating at around 99.5-100.0 and the humidity is around 53 or so. It is awesome and I am once again excited.
