I also set late, so mine aren't even due until tomorrow.
No pips when I checked yet this morning, which is good because I have to transport them back to school today. I'd hoped to meet up with the director and put them back at the school for lockdown, but instead, I'm having to transport them during lockdown.
I'd love to get your opinions on the best way to do this. Incubator is a Brinsea Mini Advance. No pips as of yet, and I'll leave within 1.5 hours. Drive to school is about 10-15 minutes.
Option 1- just bring them in the incubator. Wrap incubator in a blanket, and hope the eggs don't roll around in there too much.
Option 2- Put eggs in a carton, wrap carton in blanket, then drive to school. They won't get jostled as much, but they will be out of the incubator for 15-20 minutes.
What would you do?
When I was hatching at school and took the eggs back and forth for long weekends, I kept them in the incubator (I didn't have a turner - we turned by hand). I had an old quilt or dish towels and packed the cloth around the eggs so they wouldn't roll into each other. It probably helped maintain temperature, too, although that was not my main concern. My commute was 50 minutes. When I could, I recruited a reliable fourth grader (with reliable parent) to be the egg sitter on the weekends. Then, there were those times when they didn't get turned on the weekends. I always had a hatch, enough for all children to adopt a chick or two (and name them) until the end of the school year. I hope your hatch goes well!
