    How long can chicks stay in incubator. The first one hatched early in the morning yesterday. At least a couple of them have been in there about twelve hours or more. 7 hatched and three more started cracking. All help will greatly be appreciated. thanks:D[​IMG][​IMG]

    They can stay for 2 good days. I leave mine til the hatch is finished. Opening the bator will let temps and humidity drop. The membrane in the shells will shrink wrap around the chicks that are pipped.
