I just got a rooster yesterday and wanted to know how long after words should you start incubating and candling the eggs. I collect the eggs today and put them in an egg carton and set them on the counter in my basement. I just turned them upside down. Thats what you should do right? I am getting my incubator tomorrow. I am collecting the egg swe get tomorrow too. I will put them in the incubator. Am I doing the right thing?
