GGGRRRRR!! I have eggs in the bator for the first time ever and my turner stopped working. I am not sure how long this has been a problem. The motor is running but the bars are not moving. This is a Little Giant (I know, I know get a hovabator) is this a common problem that the turners stop? Will my eggs survive if they were not turned for a couple days? Today is day 7

I had the same problem with my new Genisis, a bar was dislogded during shipping so I had to take the turner out and work several back in the slots. Now it is working great!

Yes they'll survive. You can use an egg carton as a temporary turner. Cut the flat lid part off, put the eggs in the carton and prop one side up to create a 45 degree angle. Make sure you "turn" (prop the opposite end up to reverse the 45 degree angle) at least twice a day.

Or you can just lay them on their sides and turn them each by hand. Which ever would work for you best. I hand turned a couple of my own eggs for a few days until I was able to remove some others to make room on the turner. They're still developing nicely.
