Incubant is the entity within an egg being incubated. To incubate is to provide the required environment for eggs to grow and hatch.

This term may be confused with incumbent, which is (obviously) totally different.

(An incumbent is an individual candidate who is already serving in the position for which they are running. They are usually being re-elected, or receiving official election after assuming the position by another means.)
