So I got an incubator and have never tempted to hatch eggs in the past. I set up the incubator and put a single egg inside. This is my test egg. My temp has been stable and I keep the humidity good...I guess. I didn't really check the calendar for hatch time because I was so excited to start. Turns out hatch time will be square in the middle of my vacation and I'll be away from home. I really didn't have any expectation that this first attempt would be successful but I candled the egg today and saw veining that resembled pics I've seen from others. My question is this: if I leave food and water in the bator and the chick hatches while I'm gone will it be ok for the 2-3 days until I return?
