Here are some tips for taking care of fertile eggs before incubation:
- Keep the eggs in a cool, dry place. Fertile eggs should be stored in a clean, dry place with a constant temperature of around 50-60°F (10-15°C).
- Avoid exposing the eggs to direct sunlight or heat. Fertile eggs should be kept out of direct sunlight and away from sources of heat, as this can cause the eggs to overheat and potentially damage the developing embryo.
- Handle the eggs gently. When handling the eggs, be sure to support the entire egg and avoid squeezing or dropping the eggs.
- Keep the eggs clean. Wipe the eggs with a dry cloth to remove any dirt or debris before storing them.
- Discard any eggs that are cracked or damaged. If an egg is cracked or damaged, it will not be viable for incubation.
- Store the eggs with the pointed end down. The pointed end of the egg contains the air cell, which helps the embryo to breathe during incubation. Storing the eggs with the pointed end down can help to prevent the air cell from getting dislodged.

A fertilized poultry egg is an egg that has been fertilized by a rooster’s sperm, resulting in the potential development of a chick. When a hen lays an egg, it can be fertilized if the egg is exposed to sperm from a rooster during the process of ovulation and fertilization. If the egg is not fertilized, it will not contain a developing chick and will be used for consumption or hatching artificially. Fertilized eggs are typically used for the purpose of hatching and raising chicks, but they can also be eaten just like unfertilized eggs.
