Ok... so last year I tried to incubate an egg from Trader Joe's and failed. Anyway, I decided to try again... I have a heating pad set up in a plastic shoe box with a container of water as a way to incubate the egg. I've read about someone that used a heating pad before but one thing though, I'm apprehensive about leaving the heating pad running when I'm not at home. Any alternatives I can use to keep the egg warm while I'm gone? At this point, I'm just incubating the egg to see if anything develops. I just started today and it's been on the heating pad for almost 2 hours, not directly, I do have it sitting on some cotton gloves I'm not using.
