during incubation or during hatching?

Either way will work. you just take a flat pencil or some kind of wood piece and tilt it on sides three times a day. works for me when my turner went out.

I dont leave them in the turner because so many slots in there can have a chick's leg trapped so that is why I moved all the eggs out of the turner and put them in cartons.

Just finishing my first hatch today in an egg carton - I used a cardboard carton and placed the eggs large end/air sac up on day 18 - it was a lot less messy and the eggs do not roll around bumping the others.

It was incredibly easy to use - will hatch like this again on my next batch of eggs I set Tuesday.
