    when you first get them, put them in an egg carton, pointy ends up, in a room that is fairly cool. I think you wait a day or so before putting them in the bator...I know that they can go up to a week before you should incubate them. [​IMG]
    good luck and [​IMG]

    Pointy end goes down, large end up, in the carton. Let them rest 24 hours, then put them into the incubator.
    Edit to add no you don't turn them while they are resting.
    I just got my last batch for the season 2 hours ago & have them settled on my kitchen counter out of the way.

    Sending you positive hatching vibes!
