    I am about to put my eggs in the hatcher. Do I need to have some air space around each egg?, They will be laying down or can I let them touch as they go in there. If they just touch I can go six wide and six long, Also the sort of roll around and touch each other any way unless I create some kind of holding device.

    I dont want to use egg cartons as we have pleny enough trouble with humidity here in Colorado

    Let them have a little room so they can wiggle around so they can get out of their shells eaiser.

    Best of Luck on your hatch [​IMG]
