    Hi Dean,

    Does your incubator have a turner? If so, you put the pointed end down into the hole and turn the turner on. If you don't have a turner, just lay them down on the bottom and put a mark on the side that's up. Three to five times a day, turn the egg over so the mark is down, then next time turn it back so the mark is back up.

    What kind of incubator did you get?
