    So I did my first round of storing eggs to hatch them. At the moment it doesn't look like I am going to get a good hatch.... I know I don't have fertility issues. I had them in a room in an egg carton and rotated them at least 4 times a day. I'm thinking the tempurature in the room was changing to much... So where do you keep your eggs to store? I'm going to try storing in a different way and would like to know which are the best/ most successful ways to store eggs. Thanks ahead for the tips!

    I've been told to store them on their sides and turn them daily, as I would when incubating them. Also not to let them get too cold or too hot, so I try to keep them at room temperature.
