    How long till your others get to you? Do you know how long ago the ones you have already were laid? I don't like to let shipped eggs set around...I figure just with the shipping they've got a couple of strikes against them before they ever go in the incubator.
     
  4. After a week (from laying) viability starts to drop off pretty rapidly. Unless you know the laying date I would get them in...

    Good luck [​IMG]
