    Can you take eggs straight from the nest and put them into the incubator or do they have to sit for a day or two? Like if I was to go and grad all today's eggs out of the nests and put them in the incubator.

    It depends on how quick you are, when I did that the egg was still warm from the hen. I just slipped the egg right in.
