    This is my first time incubating and I am in need of help. First I had the temp at 102 so I lowered it to just below 100. Then the power went off and when I candled them on the 14th day. ALL my bubbles are on the bottom!!!! Are they gone, when I take them out of the turner should I turn them upside down so the bubble is on the top? Did I fry them? Should I start to dig a hole? PLEASE HELP ME. Thanks Ginbart:

    The air cell should be at the large end of the egg and when incubating them in a turner or carton, the large end should be placed up.

    When you say the bubble is on the bottom, do you mean the large or small end of the egg?
