    I incubated 20 chicken eggs and non we’re fertile. So today I went to tractor Supply (strictly instructed no chicks are coming home!) when we got there there was a chick in the water dish barely moving and I said loudly “there is a chick in the water and no one is helping it!” Finally the lady came over and got it out she said it was hurt and we could have it for free ( I was all set up bc my other eggs) so we got to take it home with 2 others.

    When we got home I thought he or was dead not moving not opening it’s eyes. I put it in my incubator and am giving it water. It is starting to walk super wobbly. Here are some pics. CAn you keep a chick in the incubator over night?? The brooding box is chilly not cold though we need a nother light but should we keep him in the incubator it is warm

  4. It should be okay in the incubator one night, we keep them inside overnight after they hatch, in some cases two nights. Just make sure it doesnt poop on your eggs or they could get bacteria inside.

    Yes, you can leave it in the incubator overnight (poor little thing). I've used my incubator as a brooder for many a finch chick. Hopefully your new little cutie will come right.
