    [​IMG] I just noticed my automatic turner was at the off position.....I believe it's been this way since late Wednesday evening when I candled my eggs.....is this hatch done for? It's due August 25. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Don't give up, it was probably stopped only a few days early.

    Candle the eggs and keep optimistic, they may well be OK.

    Thanks,I'm trying but it had stopped for 21/2 days.Of course it's going now and will stop it again on Monday.....I hope that's the right thing to do.

    Well,I'm in lock down.Stopped turning them this morning,raised the humidity and now I wait.A couple have wiggled so I guess that's a good sign.
