I have to Hova's and a sportsmans. I ordered a bunch of eggs to hatch and now my Sportsmans broke and I don't have room for all the eggs. GQF says it will be about 10 days to get my part. Any ideas?
Thanks
I mean should I put some of the eggs in the fridge and pray?

When should your eggs arrive that you ordered?
I think 10 days out is MAX for eggs to sit before you incubate with any possibility of hatching.
I'm not sure about refrigeration...hope someone that knows comes along and gives you the answer.
Good luck and hope it works out for you!

First how long till your eggs arrive?
Putting eggs in the fridge at any tempreture damages the embryo.
Do you have a Raising chickens For Dummies book?

See if they can rush the part. let the eggs sit out (not in fridge) and turn them occasionally. You may have decreased fertility because of the time, but should still get some to hatch. I've hatched non-shipped eggs that sat for over 2 weeks.
