    My electricity went out last night @1:45. At 3:30, I got up and loaded up my baters and brought them to the office. One has several eggs pipping. In fact, the same batch had one to hatch yesterday--which was early. My question is: Is it ok to transport them back home as my electricity is now on? It's about a 8 min. drive. I'll be going home at noon and want to take the baters with me.
    Also, several eggs started pipping last night before the outage...but they seem to be making progress. Any suggestions on transporting them and problems I might face since they were at about 80 degrees for a couple hours.

    I had no advice when I read this originally, so I didn't post. I was wondering what you ended up doing and how did it turn out?
