Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! When they have just hatched they are fine to stay in the incubator for 24 hours to dry off and fluff up.


Once hatch is done and they are dry they can be moved to a brooder that has heat to keep them warm, food and water.
This section of the learning centre has lots of great articles ~http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks

Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Please offer them water only from a shallow dish, with some marbles or clean pebbles in it - to prevent drowning.  Babies are not steady on their feet and also fall asleep  in the blink of an eye. - sometimes falling head first into water or feed dishes.

 

For the first few days cover any litter or pine shavings with towel paper to keep the chicks from eating it. Once they know where their feed is, you can remove the towel paper.

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
