So I have a question.... I'm hatching for the first time in an incubator and egg carton. I have eggs all placed with air cells up, total of 23 eggs in a LG still air. Some are shipped eggs and some are my silkie eggs. I let all eggs sit for about 18 hours before setting them and I let them sit in bator for the first 12 hours without rotating. Temps are holding great 99 on metal grate and 101ish at top of eggs. Humidity is holding steady at 30%. I am rotating by hand and temps only drop a couple deg when I open it and go back up really fast because my house stays at a steady 72 deg normal temp. Right now when I rotate eggs I am just rocking them back and forth in the carton. Since they have been in the bator for a couple days now should I rotate them on end with air cell down for a wihle or just keep rocking them back and fourth with air cell up? A couple of the shipped eggs had the air cells broken but they were looking better after after they sat for a while so I went ahead and set them hoping for the best. I have not candled them to check them yet as I don't want to disturb them to much until day 7. On day 7 I will be candleing a few of them to check progress but I am going to wait until day 14 to candle them all and discard the ones not developing. I'm just wondering if during rotation anyone turns them upside down at all? I am also flipping the cartons around so the eggs in the middle get moved to the outside and vis versa.
