    I can't find anywhere to store my eggs for hatching that is within the recommended range. I have a small refrigerator that won't stay any warmer than 49 degrees. My basement has a dehumidifier in it and gets some heating/cooling from my house heat pump. Right now it is at about 68 degrees and 60% humidity.

    If I have to pick one or the other to store my eggs for incubation, which environment is preferable?
