    Can you use an automatic egg turner? If not you can just not turn the eggs while you are out of town. I bet they will be fine. I have gone as many as 5 days without turning eggs and they were fine.

    automatic egg turner, or just chance it. I bet they will be fine the only problem from not turning is the embryo can stick to one side of the shell,1 or 2 days unturned wont be a problem.
    Welcome and enjoy BYC!

    [​IMG] I don't think it would UNstick but, it probably takes more than a couple of days for it to stick.
