    Turner is out. Egg carton is in this way the eggs stay upright to see if this helps. I used a farm innovator 4250 this time to see if hatching is easier with the eggs standing upright vs the incuview and eggs laying down. I had too many chicks pip under the egg and didnt make it.
    I didnt want to leave the eggs in the turner so i swapped the turner for an egg carton.
    The cage is higher up so my new cat cant get to them that easy. I still have to wrap the sides of the cage

    I think incubating and hatching is like bowling a high score. The more flippant your mindset is the better the score gets!
