    I ordered eggs on the internet and they were shipped on the 13th and I received them today. Do you think they are still good to put into the incubator or has too much time passed?

    I've heard you can keep them for up to 10 days in cool temps before you hatch them. Mine were kept around 5.

    I'd try em, just to be safe. I've had some pretty old eggs who went through a lot still hatch on me. [​IMG]
