    I just ordered some 6 quail and a couple chicken eggs for my science project. They will be coming in two days. I was wondering if once they come in how long can they sit because I cannot buy my incubator until Sunday?

    YOu should be fine. To let shipped eggs sit and not turn them is a good thing. KEep them in an egg carton upright in a cool location with the idea of increasing the ambient temps until up to 70 degrees to reduce shock of setting temps on Sunday. Keep storage temp below 70 so as to keep the embryo from growing.GL!

    Ok thank you very much I will let them sit for a couple days in a cool place until I get my incubator. If I want to incubate the quail and chicken eggs together how would I do so?
