    I put my eggs in a cooler, to collect them and then incubate them. I have them in at 48.9 F. Is that okay? And humidity is at 61%. Is this right? And if cooler not good where should I put them? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks. - jay1995 [​IMG]

    All is good,but remember you need to turn them at least 3 times a day even when storing them.
