    Hi guys,

    I have just experienced my first hatch which was very exciting and now am wondering how I could do the next one better. Everything I have read states that the eggs can be stored for up to 7 days and should be stored between 15-20 degrees Celsius ( sorry for the metric but I am Australian lol). With humidity of around 75% to prevent too much moisture loss. I have an RCom 20 Pro which is a fully automatic digital incubator that I use to hatch my eggs. However I am able to manually set parameters. So am thinking that I could use my bator to store the eggs and once I have collected enough eggs to start the set just switch it to the chicken incubation programme???? Thoughts anyone??
