Ok so the last hatch I tried I got nothing. Those where purchased eggs that were sent to me. I think they got too scrambled & what had looked like solid inside I think were just real cloudy from being scrambled. Anyway since then my BO's have started laying & my BO Roo Mr. Standoffish has been having a field day with his little harem & so that stupid incubator is just sitting there, sooooo I thought ok we've SOOOOO many eggs right now I'll give it a whirl again. So the day before yesterday I'd started collecting eggs because it was such a beautiful day & so they hadn't gotten real cold. I've been keeping them in the basement where it's cooler than the rest of the house. My question is how old are eggs when they're too old to set in the incubator? I've collected about 7 eggs so far & I'd hoped to maybe get a few more tomorrow. But if I get a few tomorrow then I should really let them set in a indoor cooler temp for a while too right? so if I collect eggs at say 10 am is say 10 hours enough time so I'd be putting them all in at 10pm tomorrow night? And is that to long for the ones sitting since the day before yesterday? I thought I'd heard somewhere that you can let an egg sit for up to a week but I figured it whouldn't be more than 3 days. Thought I'd check with all those here to see how you all do this?
