i was just wondering about placing the eggs "small end down" in the egg turner, because the eggs i have seem relatively oval or round,

i made my best judgement call but some of the eggs are near impossible to guesstimate the shaping of, is there any other way i can tell which end it is that needs to be placed downwards?

thank you ^-^

If you candle (hold a flashlight under the egg in a dark room) the egg with the air sac is the one that should be facing up.
Some dark eggs are very hard to candle, so in that case you just have to make your best judgement.
