    I am in the process of collecting some eggs from my Jersey Giaants so that I can put them in the incubator. I generally get 4 to 5 eggs per day from my hens and my incubator can hold 35 eggs.

    QUESTION???? How many days can I safely collect my eggs and keep them at room temperature until I am able to fill my incubator? I know that you have to consider alot of variables but Im just looking for your best guess. Any help you can provide will be helpful.

    Thank!!

    I think 5-7 days is generally the longest that most people hold eggs. That number would very much work for you, with your incubator capable of holding 35. Happy hatching!

    5-7 days is the rule around these parts.
