Hello all, my question is specifically in regards to button quail, but I figured it applied to all birds whose eggs need to be rotated during incubation. Normally when I incubate my quail eggs, I rotate them three times a day by hand until whatever day I'm supposed to stop rotating them. Since the number of days an egg has been in the incubator is different for each egg if new eggs are added to the incubator daily (Even when I write dates on the eggs) is really confusing, I've decided to added eggs into the incubator in waves, i.e. two dozen at a single time. Well, I get about 1-3 eggs a day from my breeding quails. This means eggs sit around for several days prior to being put in the incubator. My question is, do eggs that haven't been placed in the incubator yet need to be rotated? Or do they need any special care? Should they be stored a certain way? I've just been letting them sit in a small box at room temperature, but I'm really wondering if there's anything else I should be doing to help maintain the viability of the eggs. Thanks!
