    OK, I put in 32 eggs 9 days ago. Everything has been fine but I decided to put them in the basement so I wouldn't be tempted to fuss with them. I candled a few on day 7 and found a lot of veins and live embies so I was happy. Until I realized that they were in the same position as I put them in. Then I realized that the turner isn't working. I started turning them by hand 3x per day but after 7 days is it just too late and am I going to have a bunch of dead chicks?

    Is this a major catastrophe or am I just a worry wart?

    Just keep turning them. You will probably be ok, the hatch rate might be low though
