If they’ve gone through the post (shipped) then they need to be set to the side for 24 hours. I wouldn’t touch them or faff with them, just let them be. Then put them under your hen and let her do the work. They may have displaced or saddle air cells but there’s not much you can do for that as you’re putting them under a hen, not in an incubator.
