    I have a broody hen (second one this month [​IMG]). If I collect 10 eggs throughout the week and keep them in a egg carton until I have the dersired number, would they be alright to put under a broody hen after a week of no incubation in an air conditioned house?

    They'll be fine, I would tilt the carton at least once a day though

    Put something under it to tip it and tilt the opposite side every day. That way the yolk doesn't settle in the same spot the whole time.
