    Hello. I'm incubating eggs for the first time in a still air incubator. I have them resting in egg cartons to keep them stable during the process. Now that they are due should I take them out of the cartons to allow them to move the egg around as they hatch?

    Have you been turning them 2-3x a day? You can put them in regular egg cartons pointy end down for hatch. You should stop turning eggs starting on day 18. Welcome to BYC, by the way.
