    [​IMG] This is my own fault.....i have eggs in the incubator on day 17, i received a batch of bantams on friday which is when i must have done it. I thought i had unplugged the light by the bator when i plugged in the heat lamp for the chicks, instead i unplugged the turner in the bator so they have not been turned for 2 days before i realized what i had done.......

    Will they make it? I did candle and all are still viable, lockdown is tommorrow!

    Shoot, I'm so lazy I only turn my eggs one time a day, if I remember, and my hatches are always really good, except this time but thats due to some humidity issues this round...

    Aren't you supposed to stop turning the eggs on day 18 anyway?
