    leave it to fluff up.....how many eggs are you hatching? i only take mine out of the incubator when ever i get several and they are rolling the eggs everywhere. remember when you do remove it add more water back to get your humidity back up... i've left cheicks on small hatches in the incubator for 12 hours or so.


    good luck and congratulations[​IMG]
