I have a question about hatching. Not even close to being able to hatch anything at the moment...except a plan. I have read a couple posts on BYC where people have put fertilized eggs in the refrigerator or hold them for a week or more, so when the eggs go in the incubator they are all timed the same and not staggered. Ever since reading those posts, my question/s has been bugging me. Are you able to put them in the refrigerator before the incubator?? Wouldn't that hurt the egg? If you can't, how is it eggs are able to be held for a week or more before going to an incubator?? I always thought that if an egg got too cold....it wouldn't be able to hatch...... I'm completely confused...help...please..
