Just wanted to report on my shipped eggs. When I candled the first time, I was stupid and didn't candle upright, and also didn't mark the air cell. This morning is 36 hours after setting (after about 24-30 hours sitting upright at room temp). So I needed to candle today to mark the saddles (so I would know how to turn).
Good news is that the ENORMOUS saddles have all resolved more or less into much smaller air cells at the top, with very small saddle dips. Bad news is that, as you might expect, there's still a bit of jiggling (now in ALL of them) as the new smaller configuration of the air cell is not solid. So, I marked as well as I could, gently (there is still an outline of the old boundaries of the air cell - impressive how much it's resolved, but makes it hard to mark if inexperienced like me. Brighter flashlight is on order...), put them all back in, and am not turning ANY of them for now. Looking back at shipped egg guidance - should I try gentle turning after 24 hours or wait even longer in hopes of additional reattachment?

let them go another 24 and very gentle. it sounds as though they are mostly just jiggly do the side to side hand tilt very easy like
