    I was wondering if you can store eggs in the fridge before hatching?

    Some people have hatched eggs that were in the fridge, but there's really no reason to refridgerate them if you're planning on incubating them.

    You can safelyy set them 7 days after laying .... that would give you 14 or so.

    Keep them at around 50-55F and 70% humidity, turn them daily.

    At a push, you could go to 10 days, and still expect about a 90% hatch if everything else is ideal.

    I store mine in the basement where my incubators are.
