    My new incubator arrives tomorrow. I plan to get it set up and running for a few days to make sure it is stable.

    In the mean time I want to start gathering some eggs. How should I store them for the couple of days before the go into the bator? and anything else I should do to them before I incubate them?

    I kept my eggs in a box, egg cartons are fine. and kept it in my kitchen away from cold drafts .I put mine next to the refridge on my shelf. The motor keeps them kind of warm. [​IMG] I once saved some and put it in my cabinet on top of my stove. my chickies came earlier like a surprised ![​IMG]

    I store mine in egg cartons. Pointy end down. Some people suggest tilting them daily. We store them in the cool part of the basement.
