I was wondering if I could leave the eggs in the turner and just turn it off. I was afraid they would get their feet caught in the gaps.
I have one of those cheap Styrofoam incubators. I rigged up some clear tubing through a series of holes, sealed the holes around the tube with silicon, and use a syringe to inject water into the water tray so I wouldn't have to open it up and loose humidity in doing that. But I was still opening it to remove the eggs from the turner.
There was a guy around here that advertised on Craig's list that he had some hens breed for brooding. I think I will try to get a couple of them for the hatching part. The day my last batch hatched in the 'bator I had a hen go broody. I left some eggs under her. 20 days later she hatched them out and they were really cute little fluff balls. The ones I hatch in the incubator are always so yucky looking.
The hens just do a better job than I do.
