I am collecting fertile eggs from my girls for a broody hen. Should I just keep them at room temp or cooler? Refrigerate?? I just want to make sure my broody is serious, before I put the eggs under her.

This site talks a lot about storing eggs for incubation, whether by broody or incubator. I think it is worth a look.

Many of us don't store them exactly like this and do OK. I take the automatic turner out of the incubator and store them in that pointy side down in the coolest area of my house. It is warmer than ideal conditions, but it is the best I can reasonably do.
