    I just got a tiny new incubator where the eggs go in tip down, so they're standing upright. How do I turn them though??

    What kind of Incubator did you get??

    Ok I looked it up---there is no way to turn the eggs unless you do about 3 and lay them on their side or tilt.

    You tilt them from one side to the other in those minis that hold them vertical. So lean them right for one turn then left for the next.
