    I was just wondering what is the best way to store hatching eggs before shipping? Is it best to store at 50-55 degrees even if when shipped it may be warmer/cooler? I was just wondering if the change in temperature during shipping causes any issues? For example here it is currently about 80 during the day, maybe 60 at night and getting warmer each day, I store hatching eggs at 50. When I ship them they'll obviously warm up..is that OK?

    There's good info on egg storage here. Along with other helpful info.
