    On their sides with the small end slightly down, or if you are using the carton method... small end down and air cell UP!

    Yes you can just lay them on their side an don't turn them again, just keep the lid closed and let them hatch.

    My first hatch, I did that, they had no problem hatching. This time I am trying the carton method, already got my vent holes cut out of the bottom. No turning after day 18. I just laid mine on their side and left them alone [​IMG] . Good luck!
