    I'm planning to set 2 doz eggs in my incubator in a couple of weeks, and will keep them in cardboard cartons for the first 14 days. My thought is to just tip the incubator instead of tipping each carton. Any one have any thoughts regarding this? It seems to me, that as long as the fan is not affected that the end result will be the same, if not easier! On day 14, I intend to lay them flat, and roll them until lock down.
