    I have only ever hatched chicks from a broody mama or local eggs in an incubator, never shipped from a breeder before. Next week I'm acquiring some eggs from a breeder quite far away, and I was wondering if anyone had any advice on making my hatch more successful! Is there anything I can do for the eggs before I put them in the incubator that would increase my chances of a larger success rate??

    Let them sit, air cell up 24 hours at room temp or a lower.
