    It will take a few hours for your bator to adjust to having eggs in it with your temps and humidity....Keep your wits and just adjust accordingly...Good Luck...

    I'm so glad your eggs arrived in one piece and 3 days on shipping was fantastic! I hope you have a great hatch and have a bunch of Zaxby (delaware)babies running around in 3 weeks! I have a couple silkies in the bator now waiting for them to hatch. Plus I'm going to put a few delawares eggs in the bator for myself.

    Poison ivy we were so nervouse opening the box because of how our last eggs arrived, but your eggs were just perfect wrapped all cozy and none broke. The girls and I were just thrilled and now we just stare at the bator talking about our babies.
