    i am doing my second hatch now and i am going to try to use egg cartons. i was wondering how to roll the eggs in the carton, or if i should use the carton or just lay them on their sides?

    You can put the eggs in the carton preferably one that doesn't adsorb moisture, and then place a wedge of sorts under one end so the carton is tilted then 3-4xs a day you remove the wedge and place it under the other end of the carton. You can also do this to your incubator so you don't have to keep opening the bator and losing your humidity
