    most of my eggs hatched last night they are all dry should I remove them from the bator? and I will not have food until 11 should I leave them in till then? or is it ok to remove them before I have food?

    Yes if they are dry, I give scrabbled eggs and a bit of really well cooked wet oatmeal and water.

    How many eggs remain? Are any of those pipped?

    If you open the bator you compromise the remaining eggs.
