    What do you use to store eggs for hatching in when in a warm/hot climate like central Florida? If a Wine cooler what name/model do you use ? Thanks [​IMG]

    I don't do quail, but I keep all of my chicken and turkey hatching eggs on the top shelf of my refrigerator. I get good hatches.

    I should add--My home is not air conditioned just ceiling fans,
    I read on here eggs had to be kept at 55 degree's to prevent cell division.
    I have also read on here not to use a frig as it will dehydrate the eggs.
    I know everyone has a bellybutton..... they just look different and everyone has a twist to what they do
    but I don't want to kill any eggs from doing something silly or preventable. Thanks
