An unexpected five day trip will leave me with a couple dozen very critical eggs in the incubator. As I don't have anyone to tend to them, is it better to:

Put them in lockdown 8 days before expected hatch with higher humidity, or
Leave them in the turner and hope none pip before we arrive home a day and a couple of hours before expected hatch?
