What are the consequences of lowering temperature of incubating
eggs. I appreciate that at lower temperatures development slows down- but
does anyone know by how much? At what kind of temperature will the eggs be
damaged? I'm not talking about brief exposures but continous- I've got a few
bags that are months old- with no sign of development, admittedly they were
kept a little cooler than I would normally have kept them (probably 20
degrees)- anyone got any ideas- or done the same thing.
I did the same thing unintentionally last winter. For about six weeks my eggs
were stored at 55-60 degrees. the end result after moving them to 75 degrees
was that hatching was delayed at least 6 weeks. It seems they did nothing at
that temperature. The hatches were pretty much what I expected but delayed.
