    Was just thinking, I have a hovabator 1602N and I am now concerned with if they hatch, will they burn themselves on the "heat bar" that heats up the unit???

    I have only ever had one rather large duckling (or was it a gosling?) get on top of the other eggs and burn his head. I started removing waterfowl once they hatched. I have never had a chick get burned. If the element is on the top of the incubator I think your chicks are safe.

    Quote:Sure. Incubating and hatching eggs is not for the faint of heart, is it? I have burned myself on the heating element trying to sneak babies OUT through the window without disturbing the humidity while the others hatched. lol
