    I think I had read somewhere that you don't have to put your eggs in the refrigerator, that they will be ok at room temp for months. But if you do put them in the refrige then you have to keep them there until you use them. Does anyone know if thats true or not??

    I woudn't say months but you can leave them out at room temperature but they will age faster out than in your refrigerator.

    Well obvisously it depends how hot room temp is. They didn't use to have refridgerators and they kept well for weeks. I prefer to keep mine in the fridge tho.

    id stick them in a cool closet if you dont want to use a fridge,,, but remember,, once they get warm enough, they'll start, and then die quick.

    Put them on top of the fridge and they may hatch.
