Does it matter how I lay my eggs throughout incubation?

    Yes, that's fine. Remember when a broody sits on eggs they lay on their sides [​IMG] The only time you should incubate them upright is when you have damaged or misplaced air cells in the egg and need to keep it in the correct position. Good luck with the hatch!
