Ok so I have 3 total sets of eggs coming in the mail. One arrived today and the other 2 sets should be here tomorrow. I know they should rest for 8 hours. Soooooo should I........



Start the 1st set tonight and then add the other sets tomorrow night?

OR

Make the 1st set wait longer and start all the eggs at the same time?



Which option is better/safer?

I always let mine rest pointy end downwards for 24 hours (but it should be at least 12), so don't worry. let the first batch sit until the last batch has sat for at least 12 hours (to let the embryo, air cell etc. settle)

I would just hold out on the first arrivals to let everyone set in together. Depending upon your set-up, staggered hatches can produce some very challenging conditions. For those shipped eggies, I'd want to give them all the advantaged possible. Good luck and happy hatching!
