    and there are still three eggs yet to hatch. should i move them into their brooder and hope for the best with the other eggs? only one of them shows any sign of hatching.

    I usually leave mine in the incubator for at least 48 hours. They'll be fine. Give the others a chance to hatch. [​IMG]

    I know but resist! They're okay and no point risking the unhatched eggs. It's pretty easy to freeze dry the membrane and make it impossible for a chick to hatch.
