    Hi - sorry to be a pain but should i STOP turning my eggs 3 days before hatching is due? (if so thats the last turn tonight - how eggciting!)

    And i've got quite a large hole rack that the eggs are on, whats the best material to put under the eggs tonight so if the chicks hatch they dont fall through the rack?

    Thanks

    Get some of that rubbery shelf liner that has holes in it and cut a piece to fit on the rack. It's great for several reasons. If you can't find that, then cheesecloth will do. And if today is Day 18, yes, you can stop turning the eggs and raise the humidity

    Do what Cyn says. In fact, that in itself is just a good rule to follow.

    In this case, she's dead on.
