This is our first attempt at incubating...we candled tonight (beginning of 7th day) and saw movement in 5 eggs. Finally, the temperature is regulated and hopefully we'll have smoother sailing the remaining 14 days. The kids are very excited...we thought we may have lost them all to a temperature spike on day 1. Question regarding day 18...should we leave the eggs on the wire (we don't have a turner) in the LG or should we put the eggs in the bottom half of an egg carton for hatching. They will have been on their sides during the entire incubation. While I've read many threads of people using the egg cartons, I didn't know if it was okay to place them upright for hatching when they've been on their sides for incubation. I'd be grateful to learn from your experiences!
