    In my defense, this egg is completely oblong, like a football lol. There is an embryo developing in it but all the veining is at the pointy end of the egg. I turned it right side up; this is day 7. Have I doomed this chick? Should I assume it will be malpositioned? Or will 2 weeks be enough for it to sort itself out?
