    Well we have had our first chick hatch just this evening and we are so excited.
    The one thing that worries me is that the one chick is just wallering all over the incubator rolling all the other eggs around... Is this going to be a problem? Or should I just quit worrying and trust nature.
    I am hoping this doesn't sound silly, I just take this kinda serious and I want to do right by them.

    You can try using egg cartons to hatch in next time, I just starting doing it and really like it. The shells mostly stay in the cartons and give the little chicks more room so they aren't falling all over egg shells.
