    We are getting ready to hatch our second batch of chicks in a few days. We candled them yesterday and found one of the eggs to have the yolk sac on the side of the egg instead of at the bottom. We have an egg turner, so we are certain that the egg has been facing properly the entire incubation time. Is is possible this chick will be okay (seems to be normal size so far) or is there something we can/should do to improve its odds??

    Thanks for any help!
