I let mine sit for a minimum of 12 hours. Take them out of all the packaging and just let them breathe and settle down for a day, then incubate.

You can let them sit 12-24 hours, or put them in sooner, as soon as they are up to room temp. Don't want to put cold eggs in a warm bator. I've even set them within a couple hours and had a good hatch rate.

I'm a newbie, but I've heard you should rinse with warm water (about 100 degrees) if you're going to wash them. It could affect the hatch rate.

So what I hear is, cold water shrinks pores and soaks in bacteria, while warm water keeps them open. Put them in the bator anyways, it's still possible
