    I havee been storing my eggs in a cooler with ice, and a holder to keep the eggs off the ice. But what is the BEST way to store your eggs for incubating? And desired temp and humidity? Thanks, -Jay

    No, don't cool them down.

    Just put them somewhere like a basement for no more than 10 days, after the first day you should turn them just like you would in an incubator.

    I just keep mine at room temp whatever it is. Usually 65 to 75. My last hatch was 56 out of 62 eggs, and that is saving them up to 7 days.

    Mine are in a basement room that runs a consistent 60-65. I dont store eggs I ship, but have experimented and have great hatches even when stored 7 or 8 days.
