    I have an egg that has to go in the incubator with a turner. The shape of this egg is oval/pointed we (the whole family) cant figure which end goes down in the turner. [​IMG] You can't tell which end is which its perfect on both ends. :barnieWe have done everything even candled it. I usually dont set this type of egg but this one has to be set!! What would you do??[​IMG]

    You should be able to see the air cell when you candle it, put that side up!

    I say lay it on it's side. A bit down the road, once the air cell is larger, you should be able to see by candling.
