    I am driving about 5 hours with some eggs today and was just curious how long I should let them rest before setting them in the incubator?
    Mostly freeway driving but I would rather be safe than sorry.

    I just lay my eggs on the counter on a towel for 4 to 5 hours and put them in.

    I'd set them asap.

    I also don't turn my eggs the first day I set them in the incubator.
