I am trying to collect a clutch for my broody silky, store them on the counter, and start them all on the same day to have them hatch around the same time...... but I'm only getting one egg a day (from a non broody, the broody stopped laying for the moment)..... Problem is as soon as an egg is laid by her sister she takes it and starts incubating/sitting on it, so when I get home from being gone at work all day the development process has already started right? Or has it? Can I collect this warm egg and set on the counter for the clutch I want to start, and do this everyday until I have enough for her clutch? Or is it important that I collect eggs right after they are laid?
