I tried incubating for the first time as the roos were getting active with the hens finally. Well it's been a week for some, 5 days for some, and my dh put some in without marking while I wasn't arond this past week. Something was getting a rotten smell, so none of them had signs of life after this time, so I began opening to learn what was happening with them. One had a tiny blood spot. The rest were all normal yellow yolks with thick egg white except for one that was a runny yellow. The last one was most likely one he had put in today, and it's white circle wasn't normal in the yolk, so it might have been fertilized. I plan to restart another group of eggs, but how long can they stay out of the bater and at what temperature until I collect enough as she lays 1 a day. How do you store eggs set aside for the incubator until insert day?
