    I have 2 little cochins that have hatched, one hatched around 3:00 today and the other around 7:00. When is it safe to move them to the brooder?

    Move them when they are all dry and fluffy. Have a light ready for them and they should be find. Good Luck little chicks.[​IMG]

    Just make sure they have plenty of air, while waiting for the rest to hatch. [​IMG]
