how should I store eggs before incubating pointy end up or down???
Pointy end down. Air cell is on the big end and needs to be kept at the top.
Point down. I store for two weeks to get enough eggs for a good setting and tilt the cartoon every 8 hours or so. Though I've been lazy and only tilted once a day to no ill effect.
Read an article from Texas A&M university agriculture extension service that said :Egg Storage Reminder:
Store less than 10 days.
Maintain temperature between 55 degrees to 65 degrees F.
Keep relative humidity at 75 percent (50 to 60 degrees F wet
Turn eggs stored more than a week.
Handle the eggs with care!
Thanks every one for the help
Sounds about right. I have seen significant drops in hatch rate on eggs stored for 2 weeks. A lot of places say that it is ok, but my experience causes me to second guess that idea.
