    She is a little over an hour old now and chillen with her brother who is still in the egg in the incubator... So my question, she isn't drying, is this ok?! Her brother egg should hatch soon, but if he doesnt what do I do! I really want to cuddle her lol Thanks!

    Hi Holly! I found they take a few hours at least to dry. What color is she? I have 3 out now and they are all black with a little white.

    My incubator is pretty small and these litte fuzzy butts are very active. I have no other pips right now, so as soon as all 3 were dry I moved them to the brooder in my living room! Now I can watch them all day!
