Hi! I'm new here with a very simple question.
I'm about to start incubating Call Ducks, which I know are hard, but I'm up to the challenge!
But, they're shipped from a very good seller,
it's just when I let them sit for 24 hours like I've read,
do I unpack them and put them in like an egg carton and let them sit,
or just keep them packaged and let them sit?

It's a silly question but I just want to make sure.

Thank you both!!
My egg turner is a side turner thank god.
But when I let them sit, should I do it air cell up?

That's what I do. The main point of letting them rest is in hopes that any wobbly air cells reattach. Did you check the air cells? How do they look?

They haven't come in yet, hopefully thursday !!
But from reading the reviews, unattached airsacks are rare with this shipper, but I'll keep my eye out.
Thank you so much.

Glad your seller has a good reputation, but it all depends on the post office. if they decide to play soccer with your box, even the best eggs and best packing will have loose air cells or scrambled yolks. Hoping for the best.
And maybe the post office people are in a good mood this week. I have a customer with eggs in transit also, she should receive hers tomorrow too. So we'll keep fingers crossed! :fl
