    Keep the baby warm and give him/her time to sleep and recover. As for suggestions on your hatching, can you tell us what you are doing? Temps, humidity, type of hatcher, etc....

    I'm so sorry! Read all the stickeies at the top of this forum! They are very helpful. I read all of them on candling but neglected the rest and I wish I'd read them all before my first try.

    Did you open the 'bator to help the first one while the others were still in there hatching? Or after they were already gone?
