    I have 3 sets of eggs arriving the end of this week. I have eggs arriving in the mail this Thursday and Friday. I am picking up the 3rd set on Sat that shouldn't need to set. I plan to let the eggs arriving USPS Friday afternoon to set 24 hours which puts them in the bator the same time Sat. eve as the eggs I'm picking up and driving home.
    The question, will it hurt the eggs coming USPS Thursday afternoon to sit 48 hours to wait to go into the bator Sat. eve with the other two batches so they are all on the same schedule?[​IMG]
