I believe it will be ok.
Do not open the bator!
Sounds like with all the activity of the other chicks it will probably be rolled again to another position.
The pip facing down probably won't keep the little guy from zipping.

I'vegotchickenfever :

Will it still be able to hatch? Do I need to do something The other hatched chicks keep rollin' them over.

This is the reason I started hatching in egg cartons. Most of the time they'll still be fine, but I've had them get stuck in that position. I wouldn't open the bator tho unless it's the only egg that's left to hatch.​

yes, they have rolled up and then rolled it face down again. That's where they left it. I hate feeling so helpless:(

I think it will be fine. With all of my past hatches, I have had them laying on their sides. They got knocked around by the other chicks too. They turned out OK.

This current hatch, I have them in egg cartons. So far so good with the carton method as well.

Good luck!

Just recently heard about this. Maybe I'll do my homework and if we do this again, I'll have some options.

Thanks Y'all​
