I set a large number of eggs, and candled randomly throughout. I obviously never candled these as they were set upside down. Im on day 18! Help!! Should I set them in a carton right side up, or leave them on their side??

I would mark the air cells (I mark all my air cells) and lay them on their side, with the lowest point of the air cell facing up. That way you have an idea about where they should pip and if the are malepositioned you can keep an eye on them.

Yes, I normally set air side up. The 2 I missed were very symmetrical and I never double checked them, so they were air cell down:( The guy pipping mid shell was correct. No idea why he busted out below the air cell. Thank You all!!
