    Hovabator, very precious eggs from a fellow BYC-er. Anyone here use egg cartons straight through incubation, or do you all just use them to hatch?

    Looking for advice.

    If you put the eggs in a turner they don't need the egg cartons.
    If you are hand turning, I dont sugggest using cartons days 1-18.
    I use a turner for days 1-18 and then use the egg cartons on day 18 to hatch.
    Hope this helped. Good luck.
