    I asked this and was told it is a good idea to let them sit for 24 hours to recover from shipping before you put them in the incubator.

    i am about to put 2 pics up of the temp readings (ones eletrionic and the other is a reg. therm.) the electrionic one the humidity is off by 6 which means if it reads 39 then its atcually 45. they temp seems to be reading the same on both but i want some opions about which you think is better.
