    Lockdown is today...can't decide which way to positon this egg.

    It's air cell is on the right side on the egg, the blunt side but it is a very weird shape. It is shaped like a very severe long dumbbell or figure-of-eight. The two ends of the dumbbell shape go up the sides of the egg a bit. Do I place it with the dumbbell ends facing 'up and down' or 'side to side'??
    Or does it not matter?

    Thanks everyone :)

    I have hatched both ways (up and on side), but I usually put those on there sides with good results. Good Luck
