    [​IMG]I have 2 chicks so far [​IMG] - how long does it usually take them to dry off. they hatched during the night and here I am at work worried about them. There is another egg which pipped about the same time, but so far no other progress with that egg. if it hasn't progressed by the time I get home should i do anything??

    they will be fine. Most times I leave mine in the incubator 24 hours. as for the other give it some time. Some take longer than others. Ive had them take 24 hours to hatch from pip. Had a duck that almost 3 days.

    Remember, it could take 24 hours after the pip to when the chick breaks out of it's shell. You are at the best place you can be.. Work! Chicks can stay in the bator 48-72 hours with out food and water.
