I have 19 eggs in a LG incubator with and egg turner. I understand that on day 18 to stop turning and raise the humidity. Where I am confused is this. Do I remove the rggs from the turner and place on the screened bottom or what? Thank you

I take the turner out and lay them on their side directly on the wire. That does a couple of things.

It gets the turner out of the way so they don't have cracks and places their feet or legs can get trapped in.

But my big reason is that it makes clean-up a lot easier. Those chicks and eggs make a mess when they hatch. My turner is hard plastic and is pretty easy to clean up, but it has a motor that would not be easy to clean if it got really messy.
