    Since the weather is starting to heat up, I'm going to have to come up with a different place to store my eggs while collecting them to put in the bator. I was using the garage since it was staying about 50ish degrees, but now our weather is about 70 outside. Do you use a refrigerator turned up? We don't have easy access to our crawlspace either. Help please!!! [​IMG]

    I store mine in the basement, and keep a humidifier available while doing projects at home. In the office, we have a walk-in climate controlled storage area.

    The basement is usually a decent setup for me. If you don't have a basement, sure... Get a old refrigerator and drill a few holes in it for oxygen exchange, of course. [​IMG]

    I just put mine in a carton and put them on a shelf beside the incubator out in the shop . I put 1 end of carton on a 4x4 and turn it 2 times a day .

    I keep mine on the counter. During hot months we use AC so it doesn't matter.
