    They should be fine on their sides, are you hand turning? That's how I used to do mine before I got a new bator with turner. When I get to lockdown they come out and go back in on their sides to hatch. Good luck with your hatch :fl


    It sure is nerve wracking but the end results are so worth it when your chicks hatch, good luck with your eggs :fl
