    OMG I just got my eggs. I almost strangled my postman for just dropping them off on the porch and not ringing the doorbell (seriously the box is marked ALL over do not expose to heat/cold, reallyreally-_-)

    I have unwrapped the AWESOME bubble wrap that they were individually packed in. Seriously astounded by the wrapping by DipsyDoodleDoo. I've placed them in a controlled room (about 70 degrees) but how long do I need to let them sit before I pop them in the Hova?

    I have read 12-24 hours. I think it depends on how far they were shipped.
    Also, I am sure others with more experience will have other advice. Just trying to keep this in the recent posts section for you.

    Whatcha hatching?

    Sounds like a nifty hatching project. You`re doing it right. twelve to 24 hrs at 70* will be good. The idea is to let the eggs settle down after shipping. good luck with your hatch........Pop
