    I only let my eggs rest 10 hours before I put them in the incubator? Should I have waited? I didn't know I should have let them rest for 24 hours.

    Thanks! I have so many other things to worry about. I didn't want to start off worrying that I started them off wrong. Plus I wanted to put them in at night so I wouldn't worry about the temperature flucuation as they got settled. Sure enough everything was fine and right on when I woke up. So we are off to a good start anyway.

    Quote:Just be prepared when they're due to hatch because they will probably start hatching at night since you set them at night time! [​IMG] I usually set in the morning or early afternoon.
