We go at the longest one week. In a draft free steady temp room. Like an extra bedroom. Low traffic area.

You can pop them in as soon as they are laid if that's what you want to do. Generally the longer you wait the less likely they are to be viable - most people wait no longer than ten days though I have heard of eggs hatching after as long as three weeks I wouldn't pin my hopes on it! If you do store eggs before you incubate them just make sure they don't get too hot or cold.
