My early hatcher jostled the rest of my eggs! What do I do?

    This is my first hatch and all the marks on the outside of my eggs are in different spots so I can't tell where the air cell is just by looking :-/ I had a chick hatch on day 19.5 and jumble everything around.

    Should I candle my eggs and reset them with the air cell up? I hear lots of peeping from my eggs and I'm worried about them drowning! But I don't want them to shrink wrap either :-/ HELP!!

    The chicks tend to play soccer once they hatch. Not really an issue. I put my eggs on their sides for hatching, they will be fine.
