    we save up to 2 weeks, put in an egg carton in a cool room, and prop one end of the egg carton on a book, and every day you add more eggs, turn the egg carton around so the other end is elevated.

    Quote:That's not hard to figure out. You wait six days times two eggs a day and that equals............12 eggs.. Ta daahh!

    It is not advisable to refridgerate hatching eggs, but you can store them at a 55* temp outside the fridge I beleive. Store them pointy end down. The max days for storage is seven according to numerous sources, so I would go with that. While you can even store them longer but the fertility starts to drop.

    All the best
