    How long do eggs have to settle after being shipped? Mine have already been settling for 15 hrs (I got them yesterday evening). Is it okay if I go ahead and put them in the 'bator?

    6 hours is still enough time to let them sit at room temp. I did mine at the minimum of 8 hours and 11 out of 15 hatched for me
