Thanks to everyone who has been helping me get my incubator set up in my other post. Now I'm wondering what to do when my eggs get here in the morning. Do I need to let them sit for awhile before putting them in the incubator, and if so, what does this do? I've got an enquiring mind and just like to know stuff. I would have put this with my other post, but thought it might help someone else who needs to know also. I looked back quite a few pages and only found one small thread mentioning it, and I'd like to get more opinions than what I read from somebody with only 30 posts under their belt, if you know what I mean. HA! Not that they might not know, but hey, I like to be safe. I'm getting 18 heritage Speckled Sussex eggs. 12 came from a lady who bought chickens from the Garry Farm, and 6 are from THE Garry Farm. I am also getting 6 Delaware eggs from the Garry's as well. Maybe I should not have just started learning on such good stock, but hey, if it works out I'll have a heck of a good start! So you can see why I ask a lot of questions. My eggs are better than anyone elses! HA! HEY, I'M JUST KIDDING. Oh, yeah, I already have my incubator going so I won't have to wait on it to heat up if that is the reason for letting them sit.
