Air cells in wrong place on developing eggs

I got 6 eggs shipped from an auction & my DD unpacked & "helped" me set them up to settle 12 hours before incubation.
I realize now she laid some on their sides and some with the pointy side more up! I'm incubating in a Brinsea Mini, so the eggs are on their sides. I didn't realize this, but she's stuck half of them upside down to settle before incubation. The ends weren't marked. On Day 7, the air cells are all either on one side of the egg or at the pointy end plus a little on the side. The little embryos are all moving & healthy.

Any tips for hatching them, besides leaving them on their sides, air side up?

I've had air cells not where they are not suppose to be and the eggs still hatch out. When you unpack shipped eggs it's always good to let them rest big end up in a carton for 6 to 24 hours to help the air cells go back to the top. I always pack ship eggs on their side.
