How do you all prevent the first hatchers in a brood from playing soccer with their slower to arrive brothers and sisters? I have heard of some people laying out eggs ready to hatch in cartons - but other people have said it is important for the eggs to be able to rock to allow the chick to get in position to emerge. And then if they are in cups made of cartons, (or something else) don't the first hatchers just send them flying as they crawl about the hatcher? I have been using recycled plastic trays with 4-6 eggs on each during hatch, mainly to contain the broken shell and gunk that emerges with the chicks, although that didn't help much with our latest Araucana hatch, those little crazies were determined to scatter egg detritus ALL over the hatcher, they were amazing! But even with the trays the early hatchers climb from one to another and disturb the rest of the eggs. I hate opening the hatcher and think I have lost chicks both in opening the hatcher in the past and in NOT opening it, and letting the older chicks kick eggs around the place. I can't win and it is doing my head in! Help!!
