    I just got some faverolle and silkie eggs. I read on here you have to let the eggs sit at room temp before putting them in the 'bator. How long? Also, what humidity do I need for day 1-18? I've seen a lot of different info on here dry vs wet? Also, I know this sounds stupid, it's obvious I'm a first timer, but is day on the day I put them in the 'bator or 24 hrs after? Thanks!
