    Hi there, incubator is full and I have 6 eggs left and I don't know what to do with them. I paid good money for them and hey flew across the U.S. to me. (On a plane:D)
    Do I let them sit at room temperature for the next 10 days, put them in the fridge or ??? Help! any ideas, suggestions...

    You did not say how many eggs your incubator can hold. Have you been candling the eggs in there? Chances are you are going to get some infertile ones and some quitters that you can toss. Assuming your incubator holds 30 eggs or so, you might have room.

    I hope not, I have 3 broodys I am trying to convice to stop right now. I might just have to give them some, but I am already at a population of 53.
