    The newly hatched chick is now totally out of its shell and crawling around. In its zeal for movement its knocking the other unpipped eggs in the foam egg cups over. Is this going to cause a problem? I do have the other incubator I can move it to when it gets dry and fluffy if need be.

    Nope, but when you whip it out for the other bator collect any empty foam cups. They can hatch on their sides just as well.

    Thank you. The little chick has knocked just about all of the cups over and hopefully others hatch so it will have company.

    You'll find it will get really noisy soon which will encourage the others too
