Seeing you're in a bind I would take the eggs and place them in a rubbermaid with a few airholes in the top, with only dry newspaper. That is if the eggs are wet. Make sure they are not able to turn or roll, you want them in the same position you found them. If the eggs are dry maybe place a shot glass or something to hold a small amount of water in the box with the eggs for humidity. I would place the box on the top shelf of a closet which gets the least amount of opening/closing. If you have a thermometer place it in the closet with the box so when you get your real incubating medium set up you'll have an idea of how warm it is in there. I hatched out some Pine eggs last season in a closet that rarely exceded 75 degrees. It took a little longer but the babies were healthy as can be. Also keep in mind that sometimes eggs that look awful make a comeback and end up hatching out perfect babies. Hope this helps, let us know how things are lookin later on. Tom
