    I waited two days but no less than 24 hours. Read the new hatching posts here. That is how I knew.

    Give them 24 hours from when you see the external pip. :D it so exciting!!!

    When you can take your chicks out sorta depends on a few things. My incubator i made myself and can access and remove chicks without loosing humidity i take mine and move them to the brooder with a heating pad for them to snuggle under before theyre fully fluffed. I just wait until theyve found their feet.

    This isnt the recommended way. If you would loose humidity opening the incubator it shpould be left shut until all have hatched or max 3 days after the first one is hatched.
