    When we receive our eggs in the mail. How do we know when they were first laid? Does the seller let us know? Do we start counting 21 days from then or time we get them?

    the time you start incubating them... They might have started slightly in the mail, but not enough to measure as a day... So let them rest for 6-8 hours, and then put them in the incubator. The day after you start them is day 1...
