    let them sit for 12 to 24 hours to settle from shipping.

    I'm not sure of what temp they should sit at but i put mine in the utility room where they're out of the way from all the traffic.

    Good Luck!

    also, why do we let them sit for so long?

    Just sit em in a carton on the table to come to room temp at least before putting them in the warm bator. They can sit six or seven hours or overnight, whichever. It's just to let the aircells settle if they were shaken up alot, basically.
