    While I'm not real sure the exact answer I do know they can go up to three days without food or water so there is no rush to get them straight out. Hopefully the rest will hatch today for you so you can move them all to your brooder when they are all dry.

    Appps so do u reckon i should leave them in the incubator at 1st? And do u think theres enough air and humidity being set up @ day 18 wont harm them?

    Thanks, I want to know as well.

    But think @appps is correct, I know the hatcheries ship them very soon after hatching.
