    My 1st chick hatched today, day 19. [​IMG]
    I woke up this morning hearing churping and thought it was birds outside.. WRONG.... [​IMG]
    I went the the bathroom this evening and found a cracked egg. So I asked hubby if he had messed with the bator, and was told NO... Than the egg churped and moved.. [​IMG]
    This was one of my Banny eggs... [​IMG]
    I will post pics soon...[​IMG]

    Leave it in the incubator until it is at least completely dry and fluffed out.

    I'd leave him in there...if there are more that will soon hatch...the cheeping will encourage them...
