We are attempting to incubate for the first time with shipped eggs. I ordered 12, received 18, 3 totally broke and 2 had hairline cracks that I taped up. I didn't have high expectations only really expected 50% at best with all the variables. Once the eggs arrived two days late and being routed to 7 different stops more that necessary, I let them rest big side up on our counter for 24 hours. I attempted to candle but had a difficult time really seeing anything other than a possible saddle sac and one jiggly sac. I placed them in the Bator this morning vertically with a modified egg carton because my turners don't allow that position. When should I remove the carton and turn them? Should I hand turn or let the auto turner give them a go? I'm here 24/7 as I homeschool the kids so hand turning isn't an issue. Any help or suggestions? I need at least one to make for the kids sake and my sanity! This has been so stressful so far!
