Yea, were newbees over here... We are about to hatch our first batch of chicks in our homemade bator next weekend!!! Was wondering tho, how much space do the eggs need to hatch? They look a bit crowded in there, an many eggs are touching. Will that bother the chicks? Thought we'd thin out the eggs a bit. But after candling, it appears that all 22 are fertile, and growing! Thanks!
