    My chicks have been in the incubator for 8 hours and look fluffy but wet, I picked them up and they have this hard stuff on their backs. they are a little bit damp but I think that is from the incubator. What is that stuff, when should i move them and what do i do to make them fluffy and dry?

    Probably not totally dry yet. I wouldn't be concerned. Can you post a picture?
