    No need to really wait to put them in unless you are waiting for her to lay more. If you have enough, put them in now! The only reason to let eggs sit for 24 hours is usually for shipped eggs to give them time to settle. I start collecting eggs and as soon as I have about 15 or so, I stick them in.
