    Ok I have 7 jersey giant eggs due to hatch around next Sat. My first and last batch had 3 of 6 eggs hatch. The first egg to hatch was a wild woman and had all the other eggs rolling all over the place. One of the eggs that didn't hatch was fully done and had started to absorb the yolk so I think the rolling all over the place did it in. Do you think I should put these eggs in a carton for the hatch or is if I get another wild one should I take it out right away even if not dry and just keep it very warm???? NEed advice!!!!!!!!
