For Christmas I am letting the kids incubate eggs so each can have a chick of their own to add into our small flock in the spring. I have read all kinds of books on incubating/hatching, but have one question that was not answered anywhere. Maybe it is a silly question and the answer should be staring me in the face and that's why I can't find an answer. I have purchased a mini incubator, similar to a Brinsea mini. It has forced air and a digital readout, etc, etc... but no egg turner. That's fine. I can manually turn the eggs. I have read that you should incubate with the wide base of the egg pointing up, but how do I do that? The floor of the incubator is flat, so the eggs will lay on their sides. How can I set them in there wide side up? Stupid question... sorry. Thanks for your help.
