    Hello,

    Early march I will be incubating duck eggs. As the time draws closer, I am trying to find a good place to store them. I have read 60-62 F is best. But I am having finding a good place, all the places we have are too warm. Like 71 F at least. I am wondering if anyone has suggestions, and how other people stored their eggs.

    I store mine in my house in the coolest room down next to the floor which is probably around 70, I tilt the cartons at least once daily. I would not want to store eggs past 10 days Myself.

    I will only be storing my eggs 7-8 days. Thanks for the advice!
