I had planned to put mine under my broody hen after they hatched and so had not set up a brooder at all for them.  Of course the hen then decided they were mice or something lol and attacked them leaving me with no plan b.

 

So the first one hatched on the very start of day 21 and the second about 12 hours later.  Then I waited another 12 hours to try and slip them under the hen at night which didnt work.  I then waited another about 24 hours to try a second time just before dark which again failed.  They then went that night and the next day I made a temporary brooder from and old fish tank.  So all up they spent about 2 1/2 days in the incubator I guess without food or water.  My incubator just has two small air vents and I took out all the water to stop the high humidity.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Oh but should add a disclaimer, I had a 48 egg incubator with two chicks.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
