    Ok it feels like it has been months, but lockdown is almost here. I'm so nervous an excited! So I have a few different incubators going but imnot sure what to do about lockdown. Withmy brinsea should I remove the wire dividers? With lg should I unplug and remove the auto turner and just sit the eggs on the rack or put them in cartons?

    LG-unplug and remove turner-up to you about laying them on their sides or in cartons-I always lay them on their sides but I hear people having great luck in cartons-So I can't sway you either way on that one:) Good luck
