    Has anyone ever tried incubating while traveling in a car?

    Next week, due to circumstances beyond my control, I have to leave town for a few days. Unfortunately, my last two goose egs are due to hatch right in the middle of the days I will be gone and there is nobody at home I trust enough to supervise the hatch.

    I was thinking about purchasing a power converter for my car so I could plug in the incubator and take it with me. It's a 2 1/2 hour drive and the unborn goslings will be on day 23 of incubation when I leave. What I'm wondering is:
    1. How will the vibrations from the car impact the embryo's?
    2. Could the embryo's get carsick?

    DO NOT INCUBATE A ROOSTER [​IMG] Seriously though, I have not heard of that - I have heard of someone incubating in their bra though [​IMG]

    If you have a GQF brand incubator, they sell a car adapter so you can plug the incubator in without having to use a converter. [​IMG]

    well I know for the Hovabator Genisis they sell a car adapter for it, so I suppose it's not unheard of.

    The car adapter is used by bee keepers some how another. That's why they made it an sell it anyway.
