    I have 10 bantam eggs in the bator at school. I may not be able to get into the building on Sat or Sunday to remove them from the turner. So do you think removing them from the turner would be bad for the hatch on Day 16? I hadn't planned on bringing the bator home at all during the weekends, so I won't have a way to check it during the weekend. Opinions?

    If something happens to them, you will feel really bad. I think I would err on the side of caution and bring them home.

    I stop turning mine on day 19 and I've not had a problem. But you might want to bring them home.
