    I forgot to store my eggs pointy end down :((((((((((((( Will they still hatch or should I start over? These have been stored for a week at room temp. Thanks!

    Did you store them pointy end up? Or on their sides? I'd go ahead and set them, they should be ok.

    Not ideal, but I wouldn't stress too much. I'd set them. You'll end up having a perfect hatch......lol [​IMG]
