    HELP! QUESTION!!! We had planned that our eggs were due to hatch on Wednesday. We weren't going to turn them anymore after last night! When we went to turn them 2 have broken through but the hole is facing the bottom of the incubator. In the past they have always pipped upward! Should I leave them be? Or should I turn them even though they are zipping so they the initial hole is facing upward???

    Hopefully everything went well. For future reference, If your eggs are laying on their side, you do not need to reposition them. If they are on end, such as in a carton or turner, take them out and lay them on their side.
