I usually use a bantam to hatch eggs, but I borrowed an incubator and I have my first chick and one peeping egg.

What next?
How long do they stay in incubator?
Where to after the incubator?

I would leave all the babies in the incubator until they are all fuzzy and dry. They can go a little while without eating/drinking because they are still absorbing the yolk. Once they are all fuzzy I would move them to a brooder with a heat lamp. Make sure you dip their beaks in water to show them where to drink and make sure they are eating.

Good luck!!!

Give them some love... I mean what I did is leave them on the incubator until they are completely dry.
