    I am desperate to get my eggs and all ready for them now. The only thing is i'm going on holiday for a week at the end of this month, an was going to wait until I got back to buy the eggs.
    However I cant wait!! Now i'm thinking of taking the 6 eggs in mini incubator on holiday too,[​IMG] that way I can still turn them 3-5 times a day. Was just wondering if the eggs would be okay without the incubator heat for an hour on the journey up there, then I would plug them back in as soon as we got there?

    It wouldnt be any different than a power cut or something. But I wouldnt want to do anything to jepordise my eggs hatching..

    What do you guys think?

    WAIT till you get back. The traveling is not good for the eggs and losing the heat even for a very short time can be very bad too. If you want to even consider having a decent hatch wait til you get back. You will be much happier with your results.
