    68 degrees is when cells will multiply, and 90 is when it will form blood. These are not incubation temperatures though. Low temps like these cause extremely slow growth and the embryo will die in a matter of days. Healthy embryos grow between 98 and 101 degrees.

    Can you move them to a cold storage.

    45-60 degrees, moist, pointy end down, turn every day. Eggs can be held 7-10 days, 7 being the better of the 2.
