    I recently started incubating eggs and I realized that I put the small end of the egg up. ( because of my lack of knowledge) so anyway does anybody have an idea what the hatch rate might be for these miss placed eggs?

    they might pip at the wrong end, which isn't fatal as long as you help if they internally pip or haven't hatched after 48 hours. candle them and see where the air cell is located. if it's on the round end, then no worries!
