    I've been incubating in plastic egg trays with cutouts.
    Been manually turning the cartons 45 degrees side to side.
    Now approaching day 18 in 4 days. Should I remove the eggs from the egg trays at lockdown, and just lay them
    on the floor of the incubabtor or is it ok to hatch in the eggs trays ?
