    I'm new to hatching eggs..the incubator is due to arrive in a few days and I was going to start storing eggs. Where's the best place to store them? My basement is 55 degress but only 65% humidity--is this alright?

    I store mine at room temp around 70* for up to 10 days. Pointy end down and turn them once a day. Works great for me. [​IMG]

    you can always wrap a very lightly damp towel around your carton to boost the humidity a little. I wouldn't worry about it too much though. It's extremely dry in my house and I've stored eggs for hatching with no problem.
