    Ok well my little chick has been in the Bator since it hatched drying out. It isn't completely dry yet.

    What I'm wondering is how long can it stay in the incubator without water or food? It took forever hatching 25 hours. [​IMG]

    I believe they can live in there for 2-3 days. When they absorb the yolk thats there nutrition and will be fine.
