    How long should shipped sit in the correct position before the incubator is turned on , I recieved 22 eggs today in the mailbox and put then in the incubator immediately but did not plug it in , was planning to do that Fri about 12:00 is that too long ???
    that would be 2 full days at rest .

    12-24 hours is prime, but you should be good.
