    So yep I did it, i found someone that let me borrow their bator!! So I have so far ordered 24 eggs....i am wanting more, i mean the bator will hold 40 so why not fill it!!? I am getting hatching eggs next week from two different people and I was wanting to know how long can I let them sit before i have to put them in the bator? Is there a best way to store them until I am ready to put them all in at once?

    You should let them rest for 24 before putting them in the bator. HAPPY HATCHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    10 to 14 day from the day they are laid. I store mine at room temp, 70* to 75* in a paper egg tray, pointy end of the egg down, and turn once a day.
