    Does anyone know how long you leave your chicks in the incubator? Mine hatched this morning... I have 2 silkies and 1 Americauna...2 more eggs left to Pip! Just wondering...

    Once the chicks are totally dried off - you can take them out of the incubator. (As long as there are no other pips)
    Remember, they don't have to eat or drink for 3 days after hatching due to the yolk sac they absorbed, therefore,
    there's no reason to rush.

    Good luck
