Earlier this week the chicks I'd set in my mini incubator started to hatch. 7 eggs. Not alot of room in there. 2 chicks hatched Sunday and they seemed to really have a hard time in the incubator. Also, they were all over the 5 that hadn't hatched yet. The incubator instructions said to leave the hatchlings in there for 24 hours but between chicks, eggshells, and 5 other nest mates, I was afraid to leave them all that long. 6 eggs pipped. 5 hatched. I ended up taking the chicks out one by one after they'd been hatched around 12 hours. Even so, when I checked on the last 2 that didn't hatch I found one "face down" with the tip of its little beak out. It never made it to zip. Now I'm wondering if the incubator is just too small, if it was ok to take the babies out before 24 hours and what I could do differently next time to prevent that loss. I know I can't be opening up the incubator when they start to hatch. But just watching the first 2 scramble all over the others was worrisome. And thoughts? Thanks! This is my first time hatching.
