    E5CC1565-0A1B-49DA-9E60-FCBBE551D5D0.jpeg I’m hearing chirping inside the egg at day 19. My incubator is pretty small and I’m not sure if I should let them hatch in the incubator or put the eggs in the brooder and let them hatch with some room to get out of the shell. I’m typically gone 8+ hrs and how long can they stay in the incubator after being hatched.

    I would take that black thing out, if possible. That's plenty of room.
