    This is my first hatch and I am at day 20. At day 18 I removed the turner and placed the eggs on the wire grid. In the future should I use eggs cartons to keep the eggs in the right position or will they be OK on the wire grid.

    Thanks in advance for the advice. I'm sure I will have more questions for the next hatch.

    They will be fine on the wire grid. I hope you have a great hatch!
