    I'm borrowing my sister-in -laws incubater this weekend and I've trying to save my eggs so I check the eggs make sure they have an air cell and no cracks and store them big end up in an egg carton the only problem I'm having is I'm not getting enough eggs a day I have 14 hens and get maybe 2 to 4 eggs a day what can I do? They are free range but they used to lay in the boxes.

    How many eggs were you thinking of placing in the incubator. Eggs can be stored for a couple of weeks before fertility is affected.

    I was going to put as many as possible because I'm going to try and hatch them for my friend for Christmas
