Can I use an old bar fidge turned up so its only just cool to store fertile eggs for a longer time than 7 days? Would that help keep the eggs fresher longer?

If you turned up right up so it was only just cool then yes that would work well I think

I would imagine you need the fidge in a cool part of your house to be stable at that temp
