    Is it okay if you accidentely leave your eggs in the turner for about a day. I have an auto turner so I know they have been being turned and am jsut hoping that they will still hatch. I don't know why but I was thinking that today was only the 22 and was gonna take them out tonight

    I would say they should be fine. Some people accidently turn them the entire time, and they have hatched. Goodluck.

    Turning them after day 18 is fine. The mother hen never stops turning them. The only risk is that if they hatch in the turner, they could be crushed by the machine.
