    HELLO
    Just candelled last night for the first time, they're in 8 days.
    Realized that a few of them where in wrong side down. Some are so hard to tell wich side is wich, looked the same , till now I can see the airsack.
    They did have development going on in there. Turned 'm right side up. Now I'm wondering if I did the wrong thing and should have let them stay wrong side down. Can they still develop normally or DID I MESS UP???

    Since it is only day 8, I think they will be fine. Just gently flip them over and keep on going!

    In very fresh eggs it can be hard to tell which end is up.

    They will probably be fine.

    your over thinking this. A brooding hen rolls them around all the time when ever she returns to the nest.

    I did the same thing with my first batch [​IMG] but did not trun thelm did not have a good hatch and do feel like that was most of the problem i was over half way through when i found the mistake so my guess is you did good catching it that early good luck on your hatch.
