    Plug it in, and leave it on for a day. Check on the temp, make sure it's stable (it should be 100). There should be a place to put water, too.

    How big is it? Does it have a fan?

    Oh, and google "chick incubators help", or something like that--I kind of depended on google until I stumbled on this site :3
