    I guess you are using a incubator---have not read your past post.

    "I" do not bother them, But I do not have eggs hatching on day 18----what caused that??? I never know which end it pips on----because I just let them hatch. Look in this tray I pulled out-----how would I know which end they pip on?? LOL They all hatched is what I was concerned about. This is 1 of 4 trays in the hatcher----the other 3 were just as full or fuller.
