Ok, now that I've had one little chicky hatch, I'm an expert here to give you some advice 1st, when you put the eggs out of the turner at day 18, place them large end mostly toward your viewing area. So you can have a very good view of pips. 2nd, try to keep them out of the way of the works of the bator, can't see through them very well. 3rd, Keep them away from the wall of the bator closest to the side you view from, cause when you put the top back on those are hard to see. 4th, have a nice light right above the bator for good viewing. 5th, if you don't have a nice light, get a little pen light or mini mag light so you can spotlight each egg for a better view. 6th get a nice comfy chair right in front of the bator. 7th Buy yourself some finger foods so you don't have to get up. 8th, take lots of pictures. That should help you through this ordeal.
