    When my eggs arrive, do they need to rest or can I pop them right into the incubator? If they rest, for how long do they need to "rest"? They do need to sit still for a while, right? I've read all kinds of information about temperatures and humidity and turning and the pointy side down... but I can't find the one piece of information I was sure I read weeks and weeks ago about what to do as soon as they arrive.

    Half are going under the hen and the other half are going into the incubator.
