Going from Egg Turner to Hatcher Question.

I've got a 1588 with egg turner and some eggs are due to hatch next week. I'm considering getting another incubator to use only as a hatcher. My question is when I move the eggs from the egg turner to the hatcher during the last three days, how do I lay them down? They have been big end up in the turner of course but I don't know which way to lay them on their side. Silly question but answers will be greatly appreciated.

I don't think it matters too much. I know some people hatch with them big end up to avoid the chicks drowning from excess moisture. And others just lay them on their side.

I think the only way you shouldn't put them is small end up.

The method i use is placing them on their side in a small cardboard ring to stop them getting kicked about by other chicks.

Good luck hatching.
