I am incubating shipped eggs and stood them up in an egg carton instead of laying them down on their side. My incubator has an automatic turner, but the eggs have to be on their side in order to use it. I am going to just gently tilt them 3x a day (legos under side of carton) and do quarter rotations like I read on some of these threads. However, we are going to not be home for 2-3 days and a neighbor is going to check the water levels on the incubator. I don't think I can expect her to hand turn my eggs and I was wondering if it would be okay to lay them down on their sides at some point and go to the auto turner? I started them on 3/17 and we will be gone 3/30 to 4/1. So roughly day 14 to 16 if I have the math right. The eggs were very rolly inside when I candled them before starting them. I tried 3 of them this morning (day 3? or is it 4?) and everything seemed to be staying in place. What day can I see if anything is even alive? This might be a moot point as they looked pretty scrambled when I got them. The seller didn't mark the package as fragile or as having eggs, so they were not treated gently. Thanks for any advice!
