    I made a mistake and put my New Hampshire eggs in the incubator upside down (pointy end up) in egg cartons for the first week. I didn't realize my mistake until I candled them on day 7. Is this terrible? What could happen? Will they develop correctly?

    I am interested in seeing the responses to this.
