    I have a new incubator with automatic turner, but the eggs won't stay up, they keep ending up on their side. What can I do, is this ok?

    Eggs are supposed to turn on their sides.

    What bator/turner do you have?

    What kind of incubator?If it's a cabinet incubator you will need the egg trays or you can use corrugated egg cartons,but you will need to cut a hole in the bottom so the heat can circulate thru the bottom.
    In N.H.,Tony.

    Thank you. Just wasn't sure since they had to be pointy end down before being put in.

    @ Thkindafarmgirl. How do you add your pets at the bottom? I would love to do this.
