If you can move it to another area where there is power this is your best option.
Or you can buy a 12 volt lead to plug into cigarette lighter of car. See link below.

Any questions please email me at or call office on 0669150615

Main thing is do not open the incubator. Its surprising if left to their own device how well they will do.
I,ve had a broody off eggs for 12 to 14 hours and all hatched.
A lot depends on what stage they,re at.
Best of luck.

I have no car. The eggs are on first week of incubation.

I think your best option is to get it over to another house where the power will be on. Its too long a time to be off to take a chance on it.
