    Does the pointy end go up or down in an incubator egg turner? Or should they be on their side?

    Pointy end goes down. The air cell, on the blunt end, goes up.

    Thanks! All but one egg has at least somewhat of a point. The one is a near perfect sphere, just a bit slightly oval. How do I place that one? Just anyway and candle later on to find the air space?

    Oh, got to find this out too.
    If there is condensation on the top glass, does that mean it's too humid?
