    I posted yesterday about when to move my chicks to the brooder. I have 3 that hatched yesterday and are pretty fluffed up, but the are being obnoxious, and picking on the 2 little ones that were hatched this afternoon, can I move the 3 from yesterday into the brooder yet? I still have 3 eggs that haven't pipped yet in there, everything else has hatched. Thanks!!

    I'm not sure?? That's why I am asking. [​IMG] I was told yesterday to leave them in the bator till the hatch was over. But they are pulling on the yolk string or something on this little one and it is bleeding.

    Take them out and put them in the brooder so the pecked on chick can be left alone...

    once the chicks are fluffed out they should be taken out and put into brooder

    no reason to wait on the other ones, take them out as their ready to go
