Hatching Question from a first-time hatcher

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi y'all, so I have 4 eggs incubating, a naked neck, a maran, and two bantam cochins. I'm afraid that my incubator doesn't have enough room for them, because the naked neck and the maran are very big eggs. When they have started to hatch is it okay to move them to a different place? I've seen people who do that, but will that affect the outcome of the chicks?

Like move them to a different location to hatch, maybe a plastic tub with a towel in it.

Maybe as long as u have a heat lamp on them or a heat pad because if they get cold they can die easily and I want to keep a moist fowl if u do

But if it were me I would use the heat lamp over a tub and have it about the same temp as ur incubator and rap the moist cloth around the eggs and but with out covering the top of the eggs when they are laying on there side and they should be good
