    My eggs are due to hatch on Christmas eve. We will be out of town- leaving the moring of the 24th. Anything I can do right now to get them to hatch a day early? Poor planning, I know.

    Nothing to be done and maybe its a blessing in disguise - you'll leave all the hatching stress behind and come home to a bator full of new little chickies!! Yay!

    LOL .... Just bite the bullet! They actually SHOULD stay in the bator at least 24 hours, 48 is fine. They can last until day 3 without having to be fed and watered, just HURRY UP on day 3! You'll probably have the best hatch EVER.

    Great chickie dreams to ya
