    I started my second hatch a week ago today and I have not been candling, just turning until today. All are alive and moving except 1 which is clear. Anyways, I did candle prior to placing in the incubator but one egg I could not see the air cell so of course it is upside down. The embryo is moving around, on the opposite side of the air cell. Should I leave it be and be there to assist for hatch or is it possible to flip him right side up and still be okay? Thank you for any insight, learning as I go!
