I receive my first shipped eggs tomorrow. The incubator is ready but I had a hen go broody a couple days ago. Think shipped eggs are too fragile for hen?
 
No, I would set every shipped egg under a hen if I had a chance. They will take better care of them than you can, but keep an eye on them, if they stop sitting you will have to transfer the eggs to an incubator.
 
Fantastic. Less work for me. I just picked up eggs and they all look great. wiggly air cells, but not enough to be concerned. I will let them sit a day then put under hen. Thanks for advice
