    I was suppose to be hatching on 6/9 but one is already pipping! could one just be early? and what do I do if only that one hatches today and the others all hatch on the 9th? do I take it out? even though its in lockdown or will it survive a few days in there? ughhhh

    Quote:Yes, you could leave the early hatched chick in there and wait till the others hatch. You could leave them in the incubator for 2 days if necessary but the quicker they go in the brooder the better.
