    Hello, I just started incubating eggs at 10:30 this morning and the directions say to put them in the incubator so they lay point to airspace together. That way when they rotate they roll from side to side. Problem I have is they have been on there only 5 hours and some of them are starting to roll sideways. Directions say if they do this occasionally to fix them. I dont want to open the incubator that many times to fix them so can I just leave them like that as it seems to me they are gonna keep spinning in there? First pic is when I first put them in this morning and second pic shows how much they have rolled sideways in just 5 hours. Thanks

    If they are still turning you should be fine.
