    I'm a first time hatching momma and I have my first batch of eggs beginning to hatch tonight in the incubator! Now what do I do? Leave them in there for a day to dry? Do I put food or water in there for them? I have other eggs still in there that aren't due to hatch for another week or so, will they break those? The others that still have a week to go are still on the egg turner in the same incubator...the ones hatching now are no longer on the turner, I took them off 3 days before estimated hatch date. What do I do with them immediately after they hatch?

    Yes thank you. I posted a new thread and have gotten a few responses so that was helpful. Thanks for checking, I appreciate it. Our first chick hatched all the way yesterday[​IMG]
