Question about egg temp and shipping.....

    I'm selling a few fertile eggs each week. One of my silkies is broody now - found her tonight sitting on 3 eggs that had been laid between noon and 3 today. My question is - will this rise the temp too much, and prevent viability were I to store and then ship these egss in a day or so?

    I will run my own experiment, but thought I'd throw it out here for feedback.....

    Should be fine as long as you removed the eggs.
