WIth shipped eggs I let them rest 12 hours to come to room temp and then set them but do not turn for the first 7 days. I have seen my development rate increase tremendously doing it this way. Serama eggs are very difficult to hatch and 2 of my sets went into lockdown with 10/14 and 11/15. My Catdance Silkies came all the way from Washington State and I had 18/24 go into lockdown. I usually candle right before starting to turn them and I can toss the NF's or Bloodrings and the rest keep developing.
Thanks....OK I am doing that this time(tonite) Sounds good.!!!
My only problem is i cant put them in the turner b/c i wil have the local brahma eggs on their last few days in there too and they have been laying down Afraid ill mess them up.Guess down and hand turned wont hurt.I HOPE!
