    QUESTION!!!! Will the chicken moving around rolling the eggs hurt the ones that haven't hatched. This chick is a power house and I would rather leave it in until dry and not open the incubator and screw with the humidity in there. Any suggestions??

    Kelly G It's like herding cats!

    Leave them be...he needs to dry off. His antics won't really bother the other eggs. If you leave the room dark, it will quiet down the hatched chick(s), but I have had no problems with the hatched chicks playing hockey with the un-hatched eggs.

    All is good. Have fun with your new babies!
