    I have decided to try incubating eggs in the egg carton. I cut a small hole in the bottom of each cup and cut the top off the egg carton. My question is what angle should I put the egg carton at inside the incubator? If anyone has a picture or a picture of the angle that an automatic egg turner is at I would greatly appreciate it. Otherwise a description would be great too. Thanks [​IMG]

    Oh and I HAVE done a search on this and read material for about 4-5 hours before putting the eggs in. But I could not find this particular detail anywhere. Thanks [​IMG]
