    Picked some eggs to hatch should I let them rest as with shipped eggs? Trip was about 2 hrs total for the eggs. No rough handling or issues driving. Thanks

    If they were handled carefully they don't have to rest before you set them. The reason shipped eggs should rest is to give the contents time to settle, as shipped eggs do get handled without care by the PO sadly and they often arrive in a bit of a state.
