This is an amazing community! - I've been sitting here going back and forth between forums, reading up on all kinds of things for about three weeks now. I was going to wait for another 3-4 weeks for the weather to warm up before I bought some chicks. A buddy gave me his incubator, I got a little "antzy" looking at it... Didn't really plan on hatching eggs. However, the anticipation got the best of me and I won an auction on here. A dozen eggs should arrive today. The incubator has been running for almost two days - I have the temps steady at 99-100 with humidity sitting on 40% - I'm getting stoked!!! I thought I've read something about letting eggs that have been shipped through the mail system sit for a min of 12 hours at room temp for better hatching results... (can't seem to find it now) Is this necessary? Does the egg get lightly "scrambled" during the shipping process...etc.? Can anyone shed some light on this?
