    I got my very first box of hatching eggs, from Jody (hinkjc). I really didnt know what to think, Ive never gotten any before; heck, Im still reading the incubator instructions. Only took 2 days from PA to FL. I opened the box and found this...

    All looks terrific. I can't imagine how eggs could come thru mailing in such perfect shape, but they did. Thank you, Jody!

    Jody(hinkjc) is the best at egg packing id have to say..ive never seen better. The only way those eggs could get broken is if they dropped the from a high place or smashed the boxes.....[​IMG]

    Well.....uh.....uh......uh.... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My incubator is up and running, seems to be working perfectly, temp holding at 99.8.....so why can't I put these eggs in there now? Why do they have to "set" for a day? Cant they set while they are in the incubator? (whine........)

    You don't have to let them set for a day. 6-8 hours is sufficient at room temp.

    sooooooo....

    6-8 hours from when? When they crossed the border to Florida? When the mail lady dropped them off to me? So I can probably put them in the bator tonight when I go to bed? yeehaaaa.....I might have to call in sick with a 21 day flu bug...Ive heard its going around.
