    Missed the stop turner date by a week, is that non turning time going to make the hatch a bust ? Just put them back in turner for three more days till stop turning time?

    It is hard to say if harm has be done. I would candle the eggs before you go into lock down to see if they are still moving. Good luck. :thumbsup

    Thanks for the info! Ive tried to candle them with a bright flash light, the air cells look good bit the rest of the egg is just dark, hoping that its filled with live chicks. Iys really hard to see any thing.
