Am I a fool to try? I've never hatched eggs, but I offered to set up a Genesis Hova-Bator with auto egg turner (loaned to me) in my daughter's 4th grade classroom this spring. I will have fertile eggs of my own to try so there's nothing lost except some breakfast if they fail. My question is, how does the incubator do over weekends, when no one is around? How will they do in the noisy classroom environment? IF they hatch at all, how long should they stay in the classroom? My plan was to set the incubator up on a Monday, set eggs on Wednesday, so they hatch in 19-23 days (during the school week). They would stay for 3-5 weeks or until the teacher gets annoyed and be brought home to begin introduction to the "family". How bad is this going to turn out?
