    As long as you can tell which end the airsac is on, that's all that matters.

    Good luck.!

    If you are going to leave some under the hen, it really doesn't matter the shape of the egg. Nature is a fabulous thing and if she wants to hatch out some eggs and is a good "broody" she will do her job no matter what shape or color etc. the egg is. [​IMG]
