Hi everyone first time poster here. Today I recieved some BCM hatching eggs in the mail and have them resting small end down. The problem is there are six that I can not determine witch end is the small end. Is it OK to just let them set on their side? Wish me luck I have incubated 28 marans eggs and have had terrible luck, only 2 actually hatched.

I would say take you best guess and after you have them in the bator for 5 days candle them and then you can tell which end has the air sack. Turn them the right way AND

If you lay them on there side the end with the air sac will be slightly higher up then the small end. Hope this helps!
