Are cool days bad for fertility

40 to 55 degrees

Those temperatures are fine. Actually 55 is considered the perfect temperature to store eggs for incubation. 40 is above freezing so you’ll be OK. I’ve collected eggs for hatching when the temperatures were just below freezing but I collected two of three times a day. That was a really good hatch. They did not have time to freeze.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
