HELP! Their coming!
What do you mean upside down? Are they in egg cartons or lying on the floor of the incubator? Is it pipped in the small end instead of the large end? Or do you mean it's just facing the ground instead of the sky?
If it's in an egg carton and is standing upside down then YES definitely turn it the right way up. If it's on its side on the bottom of the incubator, then let it be--it won't matter a bit which way it's facing except for the sake of the viewer (you). Opening the incubator can suck critical moisture out of the eggs and cause them to shrink wrap, so don't open the incubator unless you have to.
More info will help us guide you more effectively. :)
It could take hours for them to hatch out - I have had one pip and not hatch for 2 more days. Since it is on it's side, let it be.

Thanks! I left school at 7pm just after the second one hatched, the kids didnt get to see that one, but thats ok because they got to see the first one. I have two that have been pipped for most of the day but are not doing anything, ones beek is visable and its peeping but its not doing much else. The other one seemed to be doing something then just kind of stopped, I am guessing they will hatch over the night. The last egg has been rocking but no pip at all. This has been amazing for my kids to see and enjoy. Although I will confess that I have spent close to 12 hours on the floor of my classroom watching, taking videos and pictures! Thanks for all the help!
