    I was told i have to let my eggs sit before incubating. If so how long do I have to let them sit.

    With shipped eggs, it is my understanding that you should let them sit for a minimum of 12 hrs before putting them in your incubator.

    I never let mine sit that long. You just want them to come up to at least room temp before going in a warm bator to avoid condensation. I've put them in within a couple of hours up to six hours.
