    Darn. Now I won't sleep ALL night.

    These are in my TX7. Is it safe to say, that the reason this happened is that some of the ggs just wouldn't remain positioned with their pointy end downhill. I'd reposition them, then a day later, they'd be heading uphill again. hmmm. advice to prevent from happening again?

    My last hatch had about 10 or more pip on the wrong end and all them made it! I put all of the eggs in a egg cartons after a few hatched and rolled the pipped ones around. They all done fine too. This time took out the turner and put all mine in cartons from day one and tilt them by hand. Just prop them up on one side then the other. I think this will be a great way to hatch! I love the carton idea!

    He/she made it!! Just a little help from me, and literally popped out of the shell. Pics coming!!

    Others are pipping and zipping!

    I REALLY liked the egg carton idea, BUT not possible in the TX. SO, you know those stacking "pill" containers that screw together? They work GREAT as little egg cups. I'll post a pic of that too.
