    My last surviving egg is meant to be going into lockdown tomorrow but I'm moving house tomorrow and Sunday! How on earth can I keep the egg in the right conditions? I have neither the time or money to be buying a portable incubator, will it be okay for half an hour while I get the incubator moved over? [​IMG]

    Um, I think it will, buy I can't guarantee it. Try not to move them around too much. Good luck! [​IMG]

    I've just candled it and yesterday I had a healthy moving chick with large strong veins, today I seem to have a blob with faint narrow veins. Think it may have died. [​IMG]

    If it is in a turner leave it there for transport. Throw blanket over it, put in back seat, drive over to new place, remove turner add water, turn on, shouldn't be a problem. You can also get some of those hand warmers to add to it. It should be fine for 30 min. Good luck and let us know how it went.

    Egg didn't hatch, it stopped developing just before the move. After I was 100% sure it wasn't going to hatch, I opened it to find a very small chick and yolk inside, no apparent reason for death. [​IMG]
