    I incubated some eggs and they hatched on time , well I had out two silkie eggs I got about 3 days later in too , so one egg hatched this morning, he is so small and the other chicks I have in the box are about 3 or 4 days old, would it be OK if I put him back in the world incubator for tonight, I cleaned my bator and put paper towels over the wire and turn the heat down to 90 would that be OK for him tonight so he can gain more strength ?
