    I have a question about setting some eggs. I have a trip planned and will be gone for about 3 day. My question is should i wait to set my eggs when i come back or before i go? The first time i incubated it failled! I didn't get a single one hatch, so I am a little nervous about this secound round. What do you think??

    I have left mine for a few days at a time. Just make sure there is enough water for the days you will be gone.

    Im going to try a dry incubation so water won't be an issue. Thanks for the input! I think i will get it set up and going a few day before i leave.
