    Ok I have too many eggs to keep up with my bator. I have been storing them on the counter turning twice a day and I want to keep the fresher ones for incubating. they have been on the counter for 10 days and I know fertility drops after that are they safe to put in the fridge and eat after being stored for over a week at room temp?

    I would treat any eggs that were not for sale as hatching or I couldn't set as eatable. I would wash, dry and refrigerate them around day 1-2.

    That's just me. I would toss any egg 7-10 days old as, non-hatch-able and non-eatable.
    This is just MHO!
