Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by ccrecelius, Jul 27, 2008.
How many days do you have to get an egg into an incubator after it is laid?
Up to 7 days to have a good hatch...then fertility starts to go down hill.....
I really don't want to sound stupid here, but I really don't have a choice. I am ignorant about all of this hatching stuff, but I really want to learn. My neighbor told me that she was saving her eggs and that one of her friends were going to hatch them for her. She gets between 0 to 2 eggs per day. I think it took her over 12 days to gather the eggs. Now the person that is going to try and hatch them for her has had them for 2 days and they are not in an incubator yet. What do you think the chances are for any hatches?
Quote:Do you know where they are being kept, if they are being turned? 2 weeks sounds like a long time, she might not have a great hatch. If I am storing eggs I usually keep them in a room(basement or bathroom) that is humid, stay around 70* and I also turn the eggs a couple times a day so the yolk doesn't stick. Good luck!
Thank you very much! I was wondering about that, she just told me that she was keeping them "at room temperature". I have no idea what that means!
Quote:Well if they are 2 weeks old, I wouldn't count on a 100% hatch, some may hatch though.
