    my house is 72-74 degrees inside. Where do I store them where I can have 50-65 degrees? I won't have my incubator till probably Wednesday!! Should I have left them outside in the cold? Right now, they are in the coolest place (my closet) in egg cartons. Any tips or ideas? Humidity is 58...

    Btw, I'm new to all of this.

    Thank you all. [​IMG]

    I just store mine on a counter in the kitchen, and everyone is developing in my bator. Maybe you could try to put them under your bathroom sink? Provided there isn't any heat vents there. The water in the pipes should keep it colder in that area.

    Hmmm... I could try that. Any other suggestions? Is it that bad to store in the fridge??
