I have tried putting in the ref in the bottom portion vegetable chiller for 10 days. They hatched fine. I am happy to hear from the other comment that they did it for 2 1/2 weeks or around 20 days. I will try this. Thanks

By the way, first you need to store them in the bottom or the vegetable chiller. The air sac should be on top, or the pointed bottom facing downwards. If you wish to store them more than 10 days, you have to move them slowly from time to time so the the yolk will not stick to the bottom of the shell. Before you set them in the incubator, let them thaw for a few hours or until the moisture on the eggs dries up and they reach room temperature. Also use only pencil to mark them.

If you put the eggs in the fridge, then you can't hatch them. They've gotten too cold in the fridge. You need to keep them in an egg carton with the big end up pointed end down, But do not put them in the fridge. Leave them on your counter till you are ready to hatch them. I think you can keep them up to a week or so.

Actually, yes you CAN keep them in the fridge and they will hatch just fine. I have kept eggs for up to 2 and a half weeks, and all but one of the two dozen eggs hatched.

I'm sorry, I am new and couldn't see the edit button. I wanted to edit to add that I also had about 1 dozen that I had left sit on the counter for a week until I had enough to hatch out. I added the refrigerated eggs in as an experiment. So, the "youngest" or freshest eggs were still in the fridge foe at least a week.
