Hi everyone we have just starting out breeding coturnix quail and need some advice please.

First question is how long I can store eggs before they need a hen to sit on them?
Second question is what temp should the eggs be at to store them I was thinking 18-20 c is that ok?

Thank you
Liz

No more than 7 days I would say for best results
I think around 18 is ok but a little cooler maybe better say 15-16 but 18 will still be ok
