    I am using a still air bator without an egg turner. My question is: Can I keep the eggs in the egg carton and just lift one side of carton and then keep alternation sides?

    thank you

    Hi,
    I don't see why not.
    Basically you are doing the same thing that an auto turner would be doing.
    But....
    I'm not experienced with still air bators (only forced air) so I cannot tell you if an egg carton would affect the heat distribution in a still air environment.
    Hopefully some one can shed some light on it.
