So my silkie eggs are too tiny for the egg cartons. They kinda sit sideways not straight up and down. So I wanna try the egg carton metod next time so how do I do this when the egg cups are too big for the small silkie eggs????

If you are putting them in a cardboard egg carton they will be fine. I am wondering about the size of the eggs though. I have never seen a small silkie egg. The only ones I have seen where pretty good size, not jumbos, but not bad either.

I only have the plastic egg cartons...Here is a pic of some of my eggs in an egg carton before going into the bator.

As you see they are no tight they lean on one side.

I did my last hatch in that type of egg carton. It did fine but I am new to the hatching world. I did bbr's and their eggs just tipped from side to side when I turned them. You can always cut the carton down more to fit the hieght of the egg.
