I know they say you can use eggs up to a week old but the fresher the better. What if they are fresh but get cold. I collect eggs everyday but unless I have a chicken sitting in the box trying to lay they are normally cold. The temp around here is about 25 to 40 on any given day. Is it alright to still use them? Thanks, Krista

They can be kept for a week without reducing hatch rates noticeably. Up to 2 weeks is ok, but hatch rate will beging to decrease.

Keep them at around 45 to 50F, in humidity of around 50 to 70%

If keeping longer than a few days, then turn them once a day.
