I am always looking for improvements as far as increased hatch rates. No matter if it will be performed by my trusty broody hens or my climate controlled incubators. No matter the method I choose, I feel that if my eggs are stored correctly while I am waiting for enough inventory to place into or under my chosen method of hatch, my yield will be greater. Currently I am storing my slowly but surely collected eggs in a large Styrofoam cooler with an ice pack that is swapped out daily. I have my eggs in a flat. The flat is on a tilt from me placing an empty egg carton on one side of the cooler. Fertile Egg Storage #1 by Farmer Connie posted Jun 30, 2017 at 6:14 PM I will tilt the egg flat in the opposite direction by spinning it around backwards. I repeat this procedure a few times a day. Depending on how busy I am but the tilt is changed opposite no less than 4 times a day. Fertile Egg Storage #2 by Farmer Connie posted Jun 30, 2017 at 6:14 PM I also placed a plastic carton under the ice pack to catch the condensation from the melting pack along with a thermometer to monitor the changes if they are drastic. Since we live in Florida and our weather changes are so unpredictable. The thermometer stays between 55° - 62° F for the most part. I set them no later than 8 days anymore. What can I do to improve this method? And how do you store your fertile eggs? I am looking forward to learn from examples of other enthusiasts. Thank you in advance. Farmer Connie. North Central Fl.
