    I have guinea hens, call ducks, and chickens expected to hatch in about 2 weeks, but I just learned that I put them in the incubator wrong. They are pointy end up instead of down! They are in an automatic turner, but at this point, will it hurt them if I flip them?

    No it wont hurt them and I would flip them as soon as possible. They need to develop in the correct position so putting them right as soon as is paramount.

    Good luck with your hatch :D
