Out of 27 eggs, so far 3 have hatched! A few have pipped also. They weren't due until tomorrow so this was a great surprise Listening to my MIL, I left them in the turner (at least I unplugged it). The DH took the first one out sometime during the day. He didn't want it to get hurt fumbling around on the turner. He placed the still wet baby in the brooder. The temp is up (around 100 degrees), water and food are accessible. So far so good. My question is how long should it take the chicks to dry out? Should I put the other one back in the brooder? He seems to be doing ok. I don't want him to get lonely. LOL! Is there anything else I should be doing for the ones in bator?
