SSUMING my eggs hatch at the end of this week (first hatch sooooooooooo exciting and scary!!), how soon after the chicks come out of the bator can I hold them? I see people write that chicks are 'affectionate" at only a day old etc., so when can the holding begin? I know they need to dry, and all need to hatch before opening the incubator. Obviously not holding for long periods, and keeping them warm, and being gentle of course! I set 16 Araucana and 6 Silkie, and after MANY newbie mistakes, temperature spikes, and other horrible things, I locked down 4 Araucana and 3 Silkies. All were moving at lockdown. i am concerned about the air sacs, as they seem to be all different sizes.
