    Tomorrow afternoon is my day 18 and I want to put them into the egg carton. I want to make sure I understand correctly when using this method you place the eggs big side up/narrow side down. [​IMG]

    This is my first hatch and so far so good. [​IMG]

    I have learned so much here. I had some eggs that I couldn't tell the big end from the little end. They told me to see where the air sell was and that would be the big end. Da, why didn't I think of that. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] OMG!! I have been looking at the eggs and thinking that exact same thing! I'm glad you said something because I would have most likely put one in upside down! [​IMG]

    Be happy for those eggs you can't tell which end is which girls because they are suppose to be hens.

    Sexing by egg shape:

    round or oval eggs hens
    pointy eggs roo's

    Happy hatching ya all.

    Time for an experiment!!! I'm curious to see if that is true, I have 5 eggs left but I really think only 3 are active...I'll make a little log and can keep track. Thanks for that little tid-bit. [​IMG]
