    I found a few studies that might be of interest to people hatching Coturnix eggs

    Coturnix Scientific Studies
    http://www.lrrd.org/lrrd20/10/vasc20164.htm - Eggs hatchability when refrigerated up to 20 days.
    http://www.lrrd.org/lrrd22/1/roma22002.htm - Eggs hatchability when stored at tropical temperatures up to 14 days.
    http://www.lrrd.org/lrrd21/3/roma21038.htm - Effect of relative humidity on incubation of Japanese quail eggs
    http://www.cbra.org.br/pages/public...ues/download/v5n1e2/AR230 Moraes pag50-54.pdf - Effects of egg position in artificial incubation of Japanese quail eggs (Coturnix japonica)

    I was wondering about this since I'm retiring my diy bator and I would have eggs sitting around for 16 days or so till my Octo was empty. How old is the study? The link for room temp storage was the same as the fridge storage

    Interesting study about the eggs stored for 20 in a fridge. The 20 day room temp study is the same link as the fridge study and doesn't work.

    Surprising that they still had 75% hatch rates at 20 days of storage in a fridge.

    Maybe I Missed It But The Study Didnt Seem To Address Post Hatch Mortality On Refrigerated Eggs??

    In My Experience Its Noticeably Higher

    I was kind of curious as to why in the egg position study they did not turn the eggs small end down, only horizontally. Some odd studies, but maybe a little useful info here and there.

    Orange is a mutation.

    I still toss eggs after 7 days...chicks get much weaker after you store eggs longer.
