Would you recommend locking down shipped eggs in a carton so they are standing large end up or flat on their sides?  I'm not sure the benefits of keeping them in egg cartons like I see some have.

 

Thanks

I am exactly where you are today! I have 29 BCM eggs that are on day 20 with no pips. I had 24 showing clear movement and have high hopes. My last hatch was quick to dry out so I bumped up the humidity on mine too!

Yaay, will be watching for yours too then.  Good luck!

I don't hatch in cartons nor will I ever. Broodies don't hatch in cartons. LOL
