    I have two chicks hatching on day twenty!!! They've piped and made a lot of progress so far. Should I do anything special for them since they are hatching on day 20 or do they not need any extra help to get them on their feet?

    No extra help.
    It just indicates the temps were a little high during incubation.

    Treat it as a normal hatch. Frequently smaller eggs will hatch a day or so early, and if the incubation temps are slightly elevated early hatches can occur.

    It's probably because they were small I had temps on the low side during incubation.
