    I received a package of shipped eggs today and had a question (or 2).

    I read through the info about incubating shipped eggs. If you have some egg cells that look good and some that have 'wandered' a bit, is it better to put them all in and turn the automatic turner on or leave it for 3 days (as the instructions said to do for eggs with not great air cells) and then turn it on. I only have the one incubator, so it has to be all for one and one for all.

    Thanks!

    I would let them all settle with no turner in the incubator for a few days then turn it on...
