    My first eggs started hatching this morning yay [​IMG]

    just wondering how long shall i keep the newborns in the incubator to dry off before i move them to a brooder?
    Also it does matter they are stumbling around, occasionally into other eggs?

    I try to keep them in until most of the eggs hatch so I don't risk lowering the incubator humidity by opening the lid. It shouldn't affect the other eggs by being rolled around a little.
