This may be a dumb question...but which direction do I need to place my eggs in the automatic egg turner? I have an LG turner. Thanks!

Before you criticize someone. You should walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away from them and you have their shoes

What's that saying? The only dumb question is the unasked one.

Yes, pointy end down. Sometimes you have one that's almost round- candle it and the end with the aircell is the rounded one and goes up.

Get your incubator  and humidity ready before you put the eggs in.

Also dont forget to let the eggs rest at least 12 hours before you put them in the bator

I let them set for 24 hours if  they are shippend eggs.
Put them  on top of the bator while the bator is running o the get room temperature.
