    This Thursday will be day eighteen of my chickens incubating and i plan to start the lockdown that day. I am leaving my apartment to go home for the weekend that Thursday. I won't be back till late Sunday night. Should i transport the eggs with me for an hour drive and then begin the lock down when i get where im going and leave them there till they hatch. Or should I leave the eggs here at my apartment over the weekend. My incubator is very temperamental and I am scared the temp will go way up on accident or I will miss the eggs hatch. Some help with the best choice would be great ! :)

    Okay yeah that would probably be the best idea. This is only my second hatch if I put the eggs in on the morning of Monday the 4 I should expect them to hatch this Sunday correct?
