    Hello everyone. I might get an incubator and know a little of the egg carton method. Can someone please teach me about it?

    -How do the chicks hatch in it?
    -Does it make hatching harder for the chick?
    -Do I lay the eggs on the carton or set them in the slots bottom up?
    -I ripped off the bottom of three egg cartons and glued them together. Will this work?

    Thank you! Pictures apprecited, too.

    How do the chicks hatch in it?...................................................................................they will find they way trough
    Does it make hatching harderchick?............................................................It is easier for the chick ,because the shell is steady
    -Do I lay the eggs on the carton or set them in the slots bottom up?......................Just put the eggs with the small end down
    -I ripped off the bottom of three egg cartons and glued them together. Will this work? .. dont make so many changes
