    As long as no one played football with the box and they aren't cracked I would get them in the incubator after letting them sit air sac end up (the big end) for about 6 - 8 hours.

    You may have a slightly decreased hatch depending on how old the eggs where when shipped and how they where handled along the way. But I have had good hatches from eggs that spent 12 days in the postal system and bad hatches from ones that took two days.
