In the Brooder
- Apr 7, 2014
I have 24 eggs in the incubator. I was told only 40% would hatch, so I expected 9. #10 is zipping as I type. Today is day 21, 1 hatched yesterday, 3 over night and we have watched the others hatch today. I had to take one out of the bator bc she was not moving and being trampled. She is dry, under light and was given some electrolyte drops. She seems a little better but may have an injury to her left leg. Others all seem to be doing well. How long do I leave them all in the incubator? At what point do I take them out and put in the brooder with electrolyte water? I was told to leave them in until they all hatched or 3 days, that seems long to me. Thank you for your help!
