My eggs in the bator are pipping 3 days early. I was going to put the eggs in egg cartons, but now the eggs are pipping on the side of the egg because I've been hand turning them. I don't what to do. Egg carton or no carton?

I would just leave them. They are already in the position they are going to hatch in, and standing them up now might mess them up. They should be fine on their sides, albeit a bit more messy! Good luck!

NO ,,, their set themselves on the side,,, if you put them in the carton now they may drown, suffocate, or be upside down,, but thats just my opinion ,, i havent hatched very many,, sorry for such little help.

Thanks everyone. My last hatch was the first time I used the carton, and I had a better hatch rate. I can't wait to post pictures! You guys are the best.

And another vote to leave them hatch naturally. Good luck!
