    i am new to hatching chickens... our first batch just hatched... so far 6 our of 9
    some hatched very late last night are are eager, energetic and moving well.... but everything I have read says NOT
    to open our incubator (hova-bator)
    the brooder is warm and ready... should i open the hova bator and move the active ones ?
    will It tamper with the remaining 3 unhatched?

    If you do not have any pips, you can take the active fluffy little ones out [​IMG]

    If you have pips, openign the 'bator could shrink wrap them due to the sudden drop in humidity.

    Good Luck!

    thanks
    i do not see pips... i think the other chicks have rolled the eggs. one is currently hatching so im inclined to leave it alone for many more hours..
    the active chicks are getting really active.... bouncing and jumping around in the bator.... one chick is funny... is very interested in the hatching chick...
