    Place the egg in an egg carton, with the fat end up, at a 45* angle, then instead of turning it every few hours, tilt it through a 90* angle to the opposite side, so it's again at a 45* angle. Continue doing this until you lockdown, at least. You are only 8 days into the incubation, so there is time for the air cell to move into the correct position. Good luck with your hatch!
