I just set a batch of eggs with a high number of ruptered air cells, "splattered" air cells, (the ones that are mis-shapen, sort of like an amoeba), and some with cracks I repaired with candle wax, that also had splattered air cells. I've read that when setting damaged eggs, it's best to let them incubate for a little while without turning, maybe the first three days in the 'bator? Any experience with that? I want to do everything I can to maximize the chances that these eggs will hatch. Once I start turning them, would it be better to use the auto turner, or put them in carton bottoms, and tilt the cartons, so they aren't in constant motion? I appreciate your opinions, and reasons for what you suggest. My thanks to all.
