    so I set the eggs Last Saturday nt. and 3 nights later noticed I forgot to plug the auto turner, so is that going to effect the hatching rate??

    Perhaps since it was only a few days and early ones in the development, it will not affect them. The biggest danger is that the eggs do not get adequate nutrition from the yolk. When turned the developing embryo gets another portion of the yolk. I'm just hoping and believing that since this happened at the very beginning of the incubation when the embryo was very very little and not needing much nutrition, you will have a good hatch... Good luck!!!!

    I just had a hatch from incubator that when I went to unplug turner it was never plugged in. I got 65% hatch which is about my normal hatch.
