I have a staggered hatch going on. The 2 day old chicks are pecking the just hatched ones. I have never seen this and have mixed week old hatchery chicks from the FS with day olds with no problems. Here in Missouri right now the humidity is so high even with a dry incubator the humidity is off the charts with hatching chicks, so with the first hatch 2 days ago I would put the semi wet chicks who hatched but were entergetic under the brooder light and they were fine. This hatch today I tried the same method and the dry ones are pecking the wet ones to point of bloodiness, ones winglet was half ate. (It is back in the bator entergetic and happy, just missing part of a wing.) My main question is how long I can leave them in the incubator without any harm? It is so humid in there they cannot dry, and what eggs are pipped are all that is left 3 eggs are duds. Can pipped eggs still drown? Thank you for reading this and any ansers.
