i just got hatching eggs in from Virginia, and i live in ga. (just so you know that they did not have to come that far), and they arrived in two days,so how long do i have to let them settle, i have other eggs that need to go into the bator today, and dont want to wait to long, any answers would be helpful, this is my first bator experi. so a little nervous here about all this stuff, i also have an egg turner that holds 41 eggs, one shipper sent 9 eggs intstead of the 6 only remark in her add, so i have three too many, can i put those on top of the other eggs, and turn them myself....Robert

i was told by the shipper, that i could put them in a carton , and tilt the carton up on its side, and wait for about 4 hours and put them right in the bator, hummm.

Most time i have heard the 12 hr but I dont see why it would hurt to do it sooner.. I think it is more that you get the air pocket in the right position
