How and where do you store hatching eggs? How long are they viable? How many eggs are in a clutch?

store mine in egg cartons small end down, cool around 60 degress, i prop up one end of the carton and swap ends daily, nothing over 10 days before you incubate, i have even put them in the bator on the turner, then when i have enough or ten days have come i plug in the preset bator.

BarredBuff, so am I sick of snow and ready for spring! Of course that will mean MUD!

I store hatching eggs, as said before, in a carton, small end down, in the coolest room in the house, which in our case is the bedroom.

I will store up to 10 days. This is for myself. If I were going to ship them, it would be less.

I store mine in my auto turner down in the basement in a large cooler with one ice pack which keeps them about 55 - 60 degrees
