    You sure can. That's what we do, as long as it's not in the sunlight or anything like that - pointy side down in an egg carton. Try to make sure the eggs are less that a week old when you set them.

    Thanks! [​IMG] I have them on a towel laying on their side because they're duck eggs and i've read duck eggs tend to do better on their side. Been turning them 3 times a day, sound good? Lol

    Sounds like you are doing great so far. You will enjoy hatching so much...... probably too much like the rest of us [​IMG]
