    does a fresh egg need to sit out in room temp. before being put in the incubator


    could the eggs that i get today be set tomorrow? with a good hatch rate?
    thanks for any input.

    If they are eggs your girls laid, a few hours at remp temp should be fine..

    Yes, they can be set tomorrow with a good hatch rate. Just as long as they don't set for more than a week. After that you pretty much loose all fertility.
