    Your chicks would be getting stuck in the turner. Maybe killing them, breaking their little legs. They could get too close to the heating element and burn their heads. They would not be able to stand up.

    OH I forgot, they need to be still the last three days to get in the right position. If the turner is still moving they would not be able to do that.
