    I don’t know what incubator you have or anything else about your incubation at all, but that sounds like what I do. Is there something unique or special about your incubator that makes yours different than standard incubators?

    Have you read the instructions that came with your specific make and model of incubator? If not, that could be a really good source for this type of information relative to your specific incubator.

    It sounds like this is your first time. It’s normal to be worried and unsure of yourself. After a few hatches, you’ll find out how tough those chicks usually are.
