    Well my Eggs arrived today that I got from vicki2x2 nice Welsummer Eggs so I am going to let them rest until in the morning and then put them in the incubator along with some of my own yard bird eggs.

    I am having trouble with my temperature setting but am going for it anyway I have no choice.

    Now need to just wait 21 days thats a long time.

    Your eggs will be fine for a couple more days as long as you turn them just as if you would in the incubator. Please get that temp regulated before you set your eggs. The wait won't be nearly as difficult for you as the day you open your incubator and realize you are going to have to throw away those precious eggs.
