Don't Make This MISTAKE When Hatching Eggs!

We ordered 18 fertile silkie eggs a few weeks ago and only 3 of the silkie eggs hatched, and we think this is why. It has been a while since we actually bought mail ordered hatching eggs from a breeder, and we totally forgot this step when it comes to incubating eggs, and that is letting the hatching eggs rest for six to twelve hours before putting them in your incubator. You do this because the hatching eggs get shook around from being mailed and they just need to rest before and settle before going in your forced air incubator or still air incubator. And we are pretty sure us forgetting this crucial step is the main reason our silkie eggs did not hatch.
