As for eating fertilised eggs go ahead and get them down your neck!! They are fine to eat, you are not killing a chick. Cell/embryo development only begins if they are incubated at the optimum temperature. ie by a hen or in an incubator.
51 degrees Celsius is 128 degrees fereignhight. Is this right? Because that's hotter than the temperature you have to keep the eggs during incubation

55 - 65 Fahrenheit is the moderately cool conditions they should store OK in.
