    HI ,Had 1 chick hatch 24hrs ago and is still in incubator and have noticed 3 more pipping .would 1st chick be ok to move to brooder on its own or would chick be ok to leave in incubator until others are 24hrs old and move them all 1st chick will then be 2 days without feed and water. not sure if chick will fret on its own in brooder.

    I would leave it until there's at least 1 more. They can go 48-72 hours on their yolk sac, so don't worry about food.
