    I had one little turkey hatch last night during the night and have two eggs pipped. Do I take the one that hatched out, or leave him in and wait until the others hatch. He is dried off and peeping away, but I hate to lose that humidity or risk shrink wrapping the other two. The humidity recovers pretty quickly in the R-com... What do you think????

    leave him in for now.. he'll be fine.. plus his peeping and kicking the other eggs may help them to pip and zip
