(DAY 7) Can I Just Lay My Eggs Flat As Using Egg Turner Is Hard

    Hello everyone,

    I have made an egg turner which is pretty rubbish and requires a lot of attention to turn and takes a lot of time to turn

    I have figured placing them flat on the mesh would have been a better idea and easier for me. It would also be more convenient for the person who is turning the egg when I am not around as I struggle turning the eggs with my rubbish turner :))

    I want to get loads of people's opinions on what they think I can do because I am on DAY 7 of incubation with my eggs and would like to just place them flat with an 'X' on one side and a 'O' on the other I hope if I do it does not damage the egg

    Here is my rubbish manual turner[​IMG]

    Do it, they'll be fine. I take mine off the turner, move them to a different incubator and lay them flat at lockdown. No worries :)
