    I just got a delivery of some hatching eggs. [​IMG]

    I was wondering how long do I let them rest before putting them in the incubator? [​IMG]

    I was figuring tomorrow morning which would be about 12-15 hours.

    If it was me, I would put them in the incubator just before you go to bed. The 12 hour rule is not set in stone. It will not hurt to wait till morning but I would worry about them during the night if it was me. I know pathetic, right?
