    Hi everyone

    i ve just hatched my first 3 chicks(my first hatch) . they seem to be doing ok but are now in the corners of the incubator and panting a little. The first hatched at 8am and the third at about noon(its now 9pm here in ireland). i was going to leave them in the incubator for 24 hrs after hatching but i m considering moving them to the brooder now as ithink it may be too hot in the incubator. the temp in the incubator is still at 99.5 with humidity about 65% .should i move them or leave them in the incubator a little longer..

    Quote:Dont know much about incubators, but are there any other eggs to hatch out still in there? If so you need to keep it locked down. if not I would take them out because they seem like they are to hot.
