I put the eggs in the incubator upside down!!! :(

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have guinea hens, call ducks, and chickens expected to hatch in about 2 weeks, but I just learned that I put them in the incubator wrong.  They are pointy end up instead of down! They are in an automatic turner, but at this point, will it hurt them if I flip them?

No it wont hurt them and I would flip them as soon as possible. They need to develop in the correct position so putting them right as soon as is paramount.

Good luck with your hatch big_smile.png
