1. Should I leave the eggs on their sides or place them in egg cartons? I heard of someone doing this recently. Is it better? 2. We had a major power outage...they seem to be doing well (I have 33 eggs, I candled 7 of them last night and there was movement in allof them). Will the outage delay my hatch? 3. To increase my humidity, should I add a dish with water and marbles, or should I use a sponge? I read that with a sponge, I can add water, if needed, by removing one of the plugs and adding warm water through a straw. 4. Should I candle all of the eggs one more time? I am a little hesitant, since the outage. Perhaps I should just wait until hatch day and see what happens. Any and all advice is welcome, as I am a new mother hen.
