    Enough to put in my incubator? Do I just leave them out on the counter? I figured not to put them in the fridge right? It's just that I only know that 5 of my chickens are fertil for sure (watched it happen) but they take turns laying every other day and I was hoping to put at least 10 eggs in my incubator.

    Put them in an egg carton - pointed end down - and put the carton is a cool room (not the refrigerator). You need to turn them several times a day. I just put a book under one end of the carton, next time I moved the book under the other end of the carton. If you have a turner for your incubator, you can go ahead and put them in the turner so they'llautomatically be turned several times a day - just don't turn on the incubator.
