That's new to me. Can someone explain to me how this works?
I'm trying that this year too. You just put them in a carton, air cell up, and it puts them in a better position to hatch. Just makes zipping easier I guess. We'll see, putting a couple eggs in the hatcher tomorrow.
I've had more luck hatching in the carton than without. The eggs stay in the carton and the chicks don't trample them as much. I usually just place a brick underneath the incubator on one side to turn them and just move the brick every 8-12 hours to the other side. Make sure you cut out the bottom of the carton where the eggs rest or poke some holes just incase when they hatch they don't do it upside down. IT does happen, lost a few chicks this way til a member on here helped me out.
Hey thanks! So do I just do this on day 18? Today is my day 18 and might try this.
Of course you can, you just don't need to elevate them in leau of turning. Good luck by the way.
This is fantastic. Thank you so much for the information.
I can't wait to meet this years first hatch!!!!!!
