    We have one crazy newborn marans in our incubator (brinsea mini --so not much room in there.) He is rolling all over the other eggs making his rounds. Could this be disruptive or helpful? Should we move him out early?
    Thanks!

    if he is all dry and running around i would take him out. but the eggs should be ok if they get moved around by the other chicks.
    good luck with your new chicks [​IMG]

    Thanks so much for the advise:) He is still a little wet, so I guess I will check back in a bit and get him out of there. Are chicks often super hyper when they are born or is it rare? I thought he would be a little more worn out!

    We took him out and he is doing great! We have one that is starting to make more progress breaking out of its shell. We have a new pipper as well. There are 3 others that we will wait and see on:) My husband unplugged the incubator for a morning a week ago. They did not loose so much heat but it was not ideal. I am eager to see if we have late hatchers with the other three, as that is totally feasible with that dip in temp. Thanks for the info and interest:) Hopefully I will post back tomorrow with a bunch of new chicks:)
