    Hey guys, so while I was at work my mom tried to help and turn my quail eggs for me. But I'm afraid she did it wrong. Instead of rotating the eggs on the side, she put all of the eggs tip down in the egg carton! Will this kill the egg/chick? I REALLY hope not..... I'm only 2 1/2 days into incubating them so hopefully they will have a chance, right? Anyway, I really would like to know quickly. I'm like having a panic attack right now.

    They should be fine. Your auto egg turners pretty much keep them point down and kind of slowly rock them side to side about 30 degrees each way.

    I knew you turned them by hand. Just was letting you know it was ok and how the auto turners do it. [​IMG]
