    Before I had set my eggs I had them in the house. The room temp was around 80 to 90 and it took a while to accumulate the eggs.My questian is could this spread out the accual time of them hatching.Their still coming out and its been 4 days..

    [​IMG] Because they were stored at warmer temperatures from my experience is that they may hatch a day or two early. On my last hatch I set my eggs to hatch in the morning on day 18 and in the evening a chick hatched and several hatched the next day on day 19. Also the longer you store them the less viable they become so don't be surprised is some don't hatch.
