    I've moved mine close to hatch day before...this weekend as a matter of fact. I have eggs due today and had to move it to a friend's house Saturday night b/c my power was out. They're back home now and 6 of them have pipped so far, so it didn't kill them at least. I'd rather chance it than leave them to die. I usually put them in a carton for the move so they can't roll around too much. Good luck!
