    that's a trouble.

    i think you can keep them till 10th days to see if there are survivors, then throw the dead.

    I recon they should be fine- the head should begin to orientate back towards the correct end. Considering, they were quite early on, it shouldn't make much difference, to as if they were on day 14 for example.

    Good luck!! [​IMG]
