Ideally, give the Christmas gift early. Let the eggs rest at 60 degrees for a day after travel (said to help reattach air sack if damaged in shipping). Ideally, start incubating on the 22nd for best hatch rate. However,, be sure to start incubating by Boxing Day (within a week after hatching).

Ditto!!


Also, maybe give your son his gift on Christmas Eve Eve (the 23rd :lol: )
