    Where do you store them? Someone said the fridge, seriously?
    Help me! I only have 3 hens, and don't get many eggs in a week, and I've read i have up to 7 days to get em in the incubator.

    Help?

    Put them in a safe area where they can rise to room temp, counter maybe

    It gets about 80 in the house right now... They can stay out for up to how many days? I want to collect like 6 or more before i fire up the incubator. as i said i only have 3 hens, oh and a duck who lays occasionally.​

    You can put your egg in a cooler with a temp. ranging from around 48F - 55F. If you put ice packs for lunch boxes in there that will work, or you can put a pan or pot of ice in there then when it melts quikly take it out replace with another while that one is freezing. Make sure you switch the packs, or pan. Goodluck...
