    My sebs are laying eggs already. Somebody said I can gather them and keep them in the house until she starts to set....how do I do this?

    Sitting here with two eggs on my lap...it's way too cold outside still, being in Canada....

    Help.....

    Just put them in an egg carton with the pointy ends down. And then put the egg carton in the warmest room of the house to prevent the eggs from getting cold and going bad. When she lays an egg, replace the egg with a little white ball and keep doing this until she actually does start the incubating process. Then you can put her own eggs under her. Hope this helps.

    No! Not unless you have an incubator and want to start incubating. The eggs will be fine pointy end down in an egg carton for about a week and a half. Hope all goes well!
