    Don' t move them from the bator for another 24-36 hrs. I would leave them in there and deal with them in the morning. [​IMG] Congrats !!!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] yay for babies !!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] .

    congrats on the hatch:thumbsup leave them in there until they all hatch.... the thing about bantams is they never go 21 days we raise and hatch bantams only and have plenty of experience with them just let them all be they will be fine let all of them hatch

    Feathered feet....likely the d'Uccles. As previously mentioned, bantams tend to hatch earlier.

    If you purchased these through ebay, it's good to know they are hatching as I have purchased from the same seller; mine went in the incubator 12/27/2011.
