Shipped eggs resting...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Going for my third hatch, 9/41,11/45... All eggs were shipped. Hovabator Genesis with turner. I plan I doing a dry hatch completely until 18 days then keep 65% ish?
How long should I let these eggs sit before putting them in the bator? I've been letting them sit 15-36 hours with the others and I can't tell that there has been
Any difference with the settling time.
Thoughts?
Maran, Swedish flower, and I hope pumpkin Hulsey eggs (if I'm not getting ripped off by this person who said they shipped to the wrong person last time)
Thanks'

I go by the air cells.  Are they small and fixed or are they big and loose or even totally detached and roll around like a bubble in a level?

 

My last batch sat for 12 hours then I put them in and started turning, using a Brinsea Octo 20 advance.  Hatched 13 out of the 19 I locked down, started with 32, but had 8 clears and 5 more quit along the way.  

 

Shipped eggs are a gamble.  Distance, altitude change, health of the breeding stock, age of the eggs can all factor in to how your hatch does.  Keeping a good temp and humidity is more important in my opinion.

 

Good luck, and I hope you have a great hatch.
