Good morning everyone! I'm new to BYC
Very concerned with my 2 new born chicks which hatch yesturday out of 28 eggs. Is it safe to leave them in incubator for 48 hrs with no food or water until others hatch.

You can.
Personally I like to remove them as soon as they dry to get them started eating & drinking so that they kinda have a head start on the cold cruel world they'll be facing.

One of them had a rough time opening shell, after 5 hrs I try to help him and open shell very slowly and he was very weak. Today he's doing much better, still in incubator
