    Ok so I recieved my eggs this afternoon! [​IMG]

    I know I have to let them settle for 24 hours but they shipped on wednesday. Am I killing them not putting them in the incubator right away? I was planning to put them in tomorrow at 2 pm when I get home (24 hours from the time I placed them in the settling place)....What do you guys think?? [​IMG]

    Pics of my gorgeous eggs!! [​IMG]

    I want to as well! Very tempted! I don't know where to put them to keep them cool... It's seventy degrees in my house and they are supposed to be stored at 50 (I think??).

    Chickens lay several eggs before they start to set... I had best hatch results with eggs that were 7 to 12 days old... I have even hatched an egg that was 33 days old also half froze eggs and eggs from the store... You all will be fine... Good Luck and Happy hatchin....

    I received my eggs today...morning around 10:30, so I am putting them in tonight around 10, 10:30. They were shipped Tues. I've waited 24 hrs. I've waited only 12 hrs. I've had good hatches either way..so, I think I like the 12 hr. waiting time best. [​IMG]
