We just started today collecting fertile eggs to put in the incubator. We are gonna collect them for about a week and then put them all in the incubator at once. My question is this: Can we just place them in the cardboard egg cartons we bought at Orscheln's and leave them sitting out on the counter? During this time, is their anything else we should with the eggs to make sure they stay "alive"? Do the eggs need to be turned during this time or only after they are started in the incubator? Never hatched eggs in an incubator before so I have a lot of questions. I hope someone will have time to help me out here. Thanks and GOD bless you!!!
