    When the chick dries off it will run around and bowl the eggs about. I would make sure I kept the dog away from the bator at all times though. Too much trauma and stress may cause problems with your hatch. Keep an eye on them and watch for progress.

    Could you explain "slid down some"? Has your chicks feet slipped through the wire bottom of the bator?
