I have a broody hen and no roosters, so I thought it would be fun to get some fertile eggs for her. I have 2 shipments coming, one tomorrow and one Monday or Tuesday. I think I should wait until I receive all the eggs before I put them under the hen, right? How should I keep the 6 I'm getting tomorrow so they don't go bad? Thanks!

Just put them in an egg carton ,small end down, in a cool spot. Not the refrigerator! A lot of people get away with storing hatching eggs in the fridge, but a lot of them are killed that way. For the 2 or 3 days you are talking about, they won't need any real special treatment.
