    Put them in a cartons pointy end down for 12 to 24 hours b4 u set them. Suppossedly this allows the membrane and air sac to repair itself and allows them to slowly come up to room temp. I always do this and tend to have decent hatches for shipped eggs

    Do I put them in a warm area or keep them at room temp? they are cold now.
