    I have 21 SH eggs going into the old hovabator today.
    Cant tell exactly how old they are as they were given to me.
    They were free, so cost is not a concern.

    I'm going to leave them in the carton, big end up, slightly tilted and do the trick of propping up the bator on one side then the other side ( for turning)

    I will use the dry incubator method, seeing how that worked so well for me on my 1st ever try.
