    I am just getting started with incubating turkey and chicken eggs. So, I am trying to absorb as much information as possible from you experts! One thing that I don't seem to be able to figure out is where to store the eggs until I have enough to fill the incubator. Our house ranges from 60 - 69 degrees. Outside the temps are 10 - 60 degrees right now. So, what are you all doing with your eggs?

    I put ours in an egg carton and stick them in the cellar. I also tilt the carton 1-3 times per day.

    I kept mine in a safe place (away from our dog) on the floor in a cool corner of the front hallway. I checked the temp. and it was about 62 degrees there. I tilted the cardboard carton 3 times a day and it worked for me.

    I just keep the eggs I want to hatch on the counter (big side up) in a egg carton untill I am ready to put them in the bator. (normally I can just go make the rounds collection eggs and its plenty to fill the bator).
