Well Crumbs! I forgot my autoturner off!

Just checked the 1202 3 days after I candled at week 1 and realized I had forgotten to re-engage the automatic turner! :banginghead::banginghead::banginghead: DO you think its still early enough that they will be ok? 3 days without being moved are days 8, 9, and 10 of incubation. :duh::duh::duh:

Give me your honest opinions, should I abort them and start over? I hate when stupidity kicks me in the pants :sad:

Re: Well Crumbs! I forgot my autoturner off!

OK I'm hijacking my own post! :gunslinger:

My eggs arrived from Paula! :love::love::love: They are all beautiful and not a single one damaged, the temperature was very good and they are sitting on my counter now in an incubation tray with a bunch of my own barred rocks. I'm going to let them sit a day to reset any jiggled air cells. I will candle them tonight after dark. I set aside some for a buddy to hatch and kept 30 for myself. They were wonderfully well wrapped like any paranoid chicken parent would do :thumbs:.

I noticed immediately that they very closely resemble my eggs. They have that trademark pinkish brown EO color and are slightly pointy just like mine. I'm so very happy that they got here in a timely manner and all safely! Thanks so much Paula, you were great to deal with and everyone here is excited to see how the hatch goes.

:jumping: :jumping: :jumping:

I am SO glad they got to you Chad in A1 shape.  I try to be ever so careful when packing them to ship, and pointy end down so I hope the air sacs are not too badly displaced on them.  I kept watching the tracking so I can relax now that you have them.  Please please let me know how they progress, have had pretty good fertility so hope you get quite a few hatch.

Happy hatching :happycrowd"
