The farmer brought me the eggs today, was hoping to put them into incubator today, the eggs are in a regular egg carton but not all have the big end up, is this going to be a problem?
Should I wait until tomrorow to put them in?
Make sure all have big end up?

They have been at room temperature since this morning???
Thanks

I have a Brinsea Octagon Advance 20, yes with the egg turner
Actually only a few were not in carton bigger end up,
So I am going to set them in the incubator in a little bit.

Just set them big end up, shouldn't be a problem. You can candle with a bright small flashlight in a dark room to see which end has the air cell. Sometimes it is hard to tell which end is which.

I let my eggs rest over night "pointy end" down. I lets the air cell settle. I dont think it would matter if you put them in now.

I will let them sit over night in the carton here in my classroom,
pointy end down. then put them in in the morning.
Thanks for your help
Should I be wearing gloves when I touch them? or can i just touch them with my hands?
