    Morning all,

    I'm a newbie to this. I've bought a Brinsea Mini Advance incubator and am waiting for my wee eggs to arrive.

    I read somewhere that rubber matting should be put into the incubator to try and help prevent splayed leg when the chicks hatch.

    Is this something I should do and if so....then at what part of the process?

    Hope this finds you all well,

    Nikkie

    Welcome to BYC, Nikkie! Great to have you with us!

    I don't use rubber matting in my incubator, so I can't answer your question. I remove chicks as soon as there are at least two that are fluffy and put them in the brooder.
