will eggs hatch pointed end up????
You can try it. Eggs can be pretty tough and some might actually make it. But don’t count on it being many, if any.
Some people have posted on their results when they do that, normally by accident. What normally happens is that the chick will often fully develop in the egg but since the air cell is not properly placed the chick can’t find the air cell (if it is still intact) so it dies from drowning when it tries to internal pip.
I have an uneasy suspicion on why you are asking this. If you are in that position I’d turn the eggs the right way up and continue, hoping for something good.
The eggs are at 20 days is it to late to turn them now.
There are definitely a few still alive because i can see the movement. I just dont know whether to leave them alone or turn them??
If your air cell is still where its supposed to be (on the fat end) I'd flip the over and
Im not totally sure. how do i tell
You can candle them and see where the air cell is. Be guided by that.
If your on day 20 have you not put the eggs in lockdown or are they a different species?
If a chicken, they should be in lockdown. But IMHO, put them on their sides.
Agreed, they should be in lockdown if they are chicken eggs, but leaving them pointy end down won't do them much good! I'd much rather open the incubator to flip them then leave them all upside down. But thats just me
