    You should place the larger more rounded end up even in storage, this is the end where the air cell is. I hope this helps!

    Welcome to BYC!
    Since this is your first hatch with a Bator a few things to remember, follow the instructions and the most important thing to do is not open it all the time.
    And last and most important during the last 5 days of the hatch, STEP AWAY FROM THE INCUBATOR, even if you see chicks, they will be fine.
    Good Luck and have fun with this great hobby.

    Another thing is to keep an eye on the temperature and resist the urge to continuously open and candle the little guys. Just do it at day 10 to toss the duds and hold your breath for just another 11 days after that! Good luck!
