    The eggs are now laying on the wire mesh after removing the turner. Should I place a wash cloth or towel under the eggs to stabilize therm?

    I never do put anything down over the wire when I take them out of the turner and have great hatches, last one was 100% on shipped eggs.

    The wire mesh is fine. Less mess for the birds to get into after hatching. Allows for better drying too.

    I never put anything down either and never had a problem but I have heard of people putting them in an egg carton so they don't roll around.
