    I have 6 eggs which are clearly infertile, and 6 which are developing fine. Do i remove the infertile ones to give the others space when they hatch? It seems pretty cramped if i don't!

    If i do remove them, is it ok to have the eggs on their side? I won't have any way to keep them inverted if i remove the others.

  2. I'd take them out. get a few dixie ups, cut them down and set the eggs that way.
