    So all the chicks that were going to hatch have hatched. There was a humidity drop so the one's pipping ended up drying to the shell so I ended up helping them out a little. Yolks fully absorbed but one was very weak. Few hours later they're both up and moving. I was wondering, since these two are the last is it ok to put them in the brooder, or is it best to leave them in the incubator for a little while longer?
