When I received eggs in mail earlier in the year, I always let them settle in my basement (60-65 degrees) for about a day before setting them. My last batch of eggs sat on my porch in the sun all afternoon (probably about 100 degrees) until I got off of work. I let them settle for a day, then put them in incubator. Seven days later when I candled them, I found nothing but a red ring in 1 out of 12 eggs. The rest were clear. I was wondering which would cause more damage... Letting them settle down to 60 degrees after setting on the porch at 100 degrees all afternoon or just going straight to the bator since they are already hot and sitting that way for 4 or 5 hours. I will be receiving some eggs this week and I wanted to do what's best to hatch these eggs. I know the whole situation is bad this time of year, but the person shipping me the eggs was going to just throw them out, so I thought I would try to hatch them.
