    HI, I just got a forced air hova-bator with a turner. I was going to be setting 30+ eggs today, I have a few questions. This is my first hatch ever. I've been researching all over the internet. I think I'm mostly prepared for this, but I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. So I've read to store the eggs, small side down. What side do I set them on in the incubator?
