    Help. I have read that I can put the eggs in the fridge but I lost the info. I bought an old fridge for my fertile eggs. How cold do I want to keep eggs or what is too cold? Thanks!!!

    I think if you are planning to hatch the eggs they are supposed to be stored around 55 or 60 degrees. Some folks turn them a few times a day too.

    At this time of year you might be hard put to find a 55-60 degree area to store the eggs. I keep mine in the refrigerator and they hatch just fine. I turn them once a day until they go into the incubator.
