    Are the chicks suposed to pip at the pointed end of the egg, or the fat end of the egg. I can't wait until monday night, to take the auto turner away and start my IBW, I need your support, Shouldn't I have a sponsor I always thought that addicts got a 24 hour sponsor?

    It is the Big end and or fat end of the egg that that are suppose to pip at....thats where the air sac is ....

    I always have my hatch eggs lined up Big end at the top like in rows....they always start rolling tho after they pip so it really doesn't matter if they are lined up...lol..they knock each other around a good bit!!...
