So I put my eggs in lockdown but then had to move them due to the incubator acting up. Are they okay? I set then small in downward. One has began to pup and I was wondering if it's normal for their air sacs to be at the top of the egg for hatching?

Yes, air sac at the top is normal. Small side down is correct. If one has pipped already, I would say it's good. As long as the temp and humidity was not fluctuated too much during the move. Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

Yes it's normal. Air sacs should be at the fat end of the egg and if it has pipped there that's fine. Try to keep your humidity up and don't open the incubator so that the humidity stays up. Good luck :fl

Yep, as Outpost JWB said, the air cell is supposed to be at the top of the egg (at the large end) so they can hatch out without drowning in the fluid inside the egg. ;)

Good luck with your hatch!
