    Came home to this sight! Twitter hatched and is looking good.

    Her egg mates are not due to hatch till Tuesday...when do I take her out and put her in the brooder??? I don't have any vent holes in my homemade incubator...is she ok in there till she puffs out? Anything I need to do?

    She will be able to breathe. [​IMG] Move her when she fluffs out. [​IMG] she is adorable!

    My brain knew she could (as I have been reading my brains out and never once about venting air so they could breath) but the nervous emotions took over.

    The brooder is ready and just waiting for her to dry out some more. [​IMG]

    Thanks

    I let my chicks dry out in the brooder.
    Here is a pic of one of my recent hatches.

    Great shot!

    You mean move her now? She is pecking at stuff...

    How warm should the brooder be? I have a thermometer in there to see what we are at right now. What temp should it be for her?
