    congrats on your baby button.. I to had a lone hatch out of eggs that got way to hot.. Maybe that made him weak. Sadly my baby didnt make it. I would try putting a mirror in the brooder so it doesnt think it is alone.. That is some thing that I was told to do, but it was to late he was already gone..

    I really need to know if it's alright to leave the baby in the bator overnight?

    And why is everyone ignoring this thread?
