My mom and I put some Polish, Sexlink, New Hampshire, Rock, and Silkie eggs in an incubator last month. This morning we heard a pip. We're not sure which one it is, but my mom thinks it's a Silkie because we know it's not a Polish and so far, most of the other eggs have been double and triple yokers. We know that it's either going to be a pure Silkie or one of the others crossed with a Polish. Now, my problem is: My mom has left for work... I've never hatched a chick before. What do I do? How long does it take for the chick to hatch? How should I prepare? How long should I leave it in the incubator after it hatches? When should I start handling it? My mom didn't tell me because she had no hope that they'd hatch because, recently, we haven't heard of people having any luck and this is our first time... Plus, the very first week, the heat got a couple degrees higher than it should have been... Will that cause any problems? What should I do if the chick hatches and something's wrong with it?
