This is my first time hatching eggs. I have seen on a few of the posts that there is a reasting period from shipment to bator. Can anyone explain why and for how long for me. I know it may be a silly question but as I said it's my first time. I have 7 silkie eggs and 12 mixed batam eggs that were shipped today! Thanks in advance.

My completely ignorant opinion is base it on the temperature of the eggs when you get them. Eggs that have been out in 70 degree weather on a truck just need to settle about 6 hours. One that has been on a truck in the 40's needs an entire day to reach room temp. JMO
