I am so excited. I got one chick in the early afternoon. 4 out of 12 eggs were good early on. I think the others might have frozen before they got here. I am not sure if the other three will hatch. I will wait 4 more days. One is out of the shell and running around the incubator. How long does it need to stay in the incubator? I have my brooder up and running. Nothing fancy. Just a heat lamp and a plastic tote. Temp around 96-98. Is that the right temp? I have put down newspapers with some paper towels on the top of that. I won't be able to get feed today. How soon should I give it something? I was thinking scrambled egg or something until tomorrow. Dh will pick some chick feed on his run. It's a cute little peeper. I have 12 more eggs in the incubator and need to get the chick out asap. They wont hatch until March 4th or so. I got day olds last year. This is the first one I have hatched from an incubator. YAY!!!
