    Can any one tell me the proper way to position eggs in a Roll-X incubator? I used it one time last year with the eggs lying on their sides and got about a 80% hatch rate. I saw one video on the net that had them standing with the pointed end down. That looks like it would break the eggs between the wires of the turner.[​IMG] Only problem I had last year was that some of the peeps hatched on the small end of the egg.
