Hatch came early and the turner is still in. and the little ones are climbing all over the turner can this hurt them?
should I remove the turner I have about 25 more eggs to hatch that are pipping. I now have I looks black ameraucana from sebright and more to hatch and 2 silkies from CJexotixs

wow congrat's on all the babies. You have a very good question on your hands. What comes to mind is possibly the turner could catch their little legs and trap them when it turns to a certain angel. I would think of a way to take it out.

Had the same thing happen. We let the little one dry and moved them some would say prematurely. Brooder needs heat lamp. We had no problem with ours. I would move the chicks and lay the eggs down in the incubator. Just be quick but careful. Good luck!!!

This sort of thing makes me think I should put an on/off switch on the egg-turner so that I can switch it off with "Lockdown" without opening the 'bator.

(Who FAILED miserably with his first attempt at incubating in a homemade 'bator and has relied upon broody hens since. Will do the Hovabator thing this Winter!)
