    I just received the fertilized eggs I ordered in the mail. Do I have to do anything to them or with them or is it ok for me to slip them under my broody hen right now?

    You will want to let them "rest" for 24 hrs....before giving them to your hen. Good luck on the hatch!

    yeah set them so they wont go into temperature shock
    and put them under the hen at night so she wont really notice
