I have never had this problem before. I have 12 silkie eggs to set in the incubator probably tomorrow. The problem is that 4 of them are uniform in shape, they have no small end! When you candle them they are to dark to tell where the air cell is. Can you tell which end is up because I sure can't? Figure I will incubate those 4 on their side and hand turn them until they get some growth so I can see the air cell and go from there. Uhg, I hate hand turning too. Here they are, the 4 on their side if you are any better than me!
