    I have some very large oval shaped barred rock eggs that I have in my bator. I have been very good and haven't opened the bator till day 14. I took them out and candled them and got rid of the clear ones. I always move the eggs in a differnt position in the bator in case of warm/cool spots. I put them back in and forgot them again till today, day17. I looked at the bator and noticed that one of the eggs was so tall it hit the side of the bator and got knocked on it side and ended up with the big end slightly pointing down. When the turner goes the other way the big end is definately pointed down. The eggs are still in the turner for another day.
    What should I do with that egg? Leave it till tomorrow since it will be going on its side anyways? Or right it back to the correct position? I know which side goes up because I wrote on the top of each one.
