We had our barred rock chick hatch yesterday at day 21. The 5 Welsummers still haven't hatched (day 22), but I did see one pipping today - so good sign (assuming the eggs can handle the chick playing romper room with them - she is pretty active). btw - ignore the temperature on that thermometer - its there for humidity - temp is 99.5 in the incubator.
Anyone know if its OK to pull the chick out before the others have hatched? She hatched yesterday around 5pm - assuming the Welsummers hatch today they won't be dry till tomorrow - so that could be 2 days w/o food for the rock before she gets food and water.
