    Ok, well i did have 31 good eggs in there now i have 28. I had a few more go bad on me. ITs fine tho 28 is a good num. Its day 18 i moved a dozen to a egg carten and let the rest lay there. I am keeping a eye on every thing. Last hatch was very good and lets hope this one is just as good or better.

    unless it is a forced air, the eggs in the carton will be hotter than the eggs laying flat
