    What day are you on? If you are in lockdown, you should make sure your humidity is about 65. And once they start to pip do not open the incubator, you do not want to make the humidity drop.

    Once your babies are dried, you can put them in a brooder. Any box, tub, etc with a heat lamp, food and water. However, they don't need to eat or drink for the first 72 hours.
