    I am so sorry for the title. My shipped duck eggs just arrived. What should I do! I was all prepared and the second I touched the package I started to freak out. Please help. Should I keep them at room temp. How should I let them set. Thank you.

    Leave them in the container they came in; or pointed end down. Let them sit for 24 hours before being put in the incubator or other.
    Room temperature.

    Agree with above. Good luck and have fun with your new duckies. Would love to see some pictures when they hatch

    8 of the 9 seem to have detached air cells. The other has a loose air cell. What do I do.

    Leave them sit as I posted before-in the container they came in or pointed end down for 24 hours (undisturbed)-sometimes the air cell will right itself (they must remain motionless)-as far as I know there is nothing else you can do. Good luck!
