    Quote:Ok so right now I have them laying flat on the bottom of the incubator, you think I should get an egg carton? Does it matter which end goes into the egg carton? I'm a little confused at the 3x a day thing. you said tilt the egg carton 3x a day at a modest angle but let the carton lay flat? How do you lay an egg carton flat but yet tilt it 3x a day. ???

    The last time you 'tilt' it for the day, you lay it flat. It's already tilted to one side, so you're 'tilting' it again by laying it flat.

    Ok I'm not sure if I completely understand that, but I will give what you say a shot? Should I be tilting now or give it a day or two for the bubble to kind of settle at the top?
