WEll I got both batches of shipped eggs I ordered this morning. After letting them settle all day, I got home around 9 pm and but them in the bator. I have 21 eggs all together. 7 silkie batams and 14 mixed batams (shipper was nice enough to send 2 extras). Wish me luck everyone!!!<fingers crossed>

Best of luck - I am getting ready to incubate my first eggs and my first shipped eggs in just a few days too!

Hey gocrow77!! I wish you all the luck inthe world. Put mine in last night and this morning so far it is holding 99-100 degree temps and 35-45% humidity. So far so good.

Shipped eggs are always a gamble, my last batch was badly handled and didn't go (one broken, other's with obvious air cell damage). So here's hoping the PO was kind and all goes well.

Well we are at the beginning of day 3 and luckily the bator is holding between 99 and 100 and humidity is 30%-35%. Humidity seems to go up as the day goes on, but not extremly high. still have my fingers crossed. As I said before "SO FAR SO GOOD!"

This is my first time too, I have 15 shipped silkies. I didn't order a turner with my incubator but after turning them a couple of times I have one on the way. I think I will feel better about them being turned constantly. Well good luck!
