Best time for Replacement of canary eggs

after egglaying

Question: How long after an egg is laid that it is safe to take out? I'd think pulling late in the day (afternoon) would be too late, that incubation may have started by then, assumed the hen is sitting, and that pulling/cooling after incubation has started would kill the embryo but I don't know what that window-of- opportunity is...an hour? Two hours?  Or, it can be for a longer time?

Comment(s):

C1:  I think it is about 4 hours. C2:  I'll be fine leaving them all day until I'm home from work before swapping for duds so not quite sure which is correct. C3 I pulled eggs when I came home in afternoon and then returned them to the hens at 4th egg. All chicks hatched. C4 Pulling eggs is ok, but it is time consuming and dangerous to breaking the eggs. C5 I agree in that I've never pulled eggs in the 20+ years I've been raising canaries or gouldian finches.
