    I have a little conundrum I need resolved by the end of the week. I live in a remote area and have started incubating some chook eggs. We have unexpectantly been told we need to attend a meeting an 8 hour drive away this weekend, but have no way to incubate eggs during the drive and/or have any person who can turn the eggs in our absence. So what's the lesser of the two evils? Taking the incubator with us but it not being plugged in for the duration of the drive (8 hours), or leaving the eggs at home for four days without them being turned. The eggs are Sussex and will be at day 14 when we leave, so day 18 when we will return home. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Cheers

    xs two. It is not neccessary to turn eggs after two weeks, so leave them home and don't worry about turning.
