I have hatched lots of chicks but have always taken them out after they r dry and running around! I always put a tiny thing of water in the incubator for them to start drinking out of and for humidity. Would tgey make it two days do u think??

maybe if you hurried home, sometimes it can get too hot usually after they come out you drop it to 90-95 for them, you could put like a lid or something full of their food in it too.

Ok. I have put food in before and all they do is make a mess so I quit doing that. And mine dont ever start eating till day 3-4.

hmm mine always eat right off the bat, you could probably get away with leaving them for a couple days then.
