    How can I tell if it's dried enough to remove to the brooder?

    Is it fluffy? Does it look really glossy? If you question whether it is dry enough its probably best just to leave it. Unless its hopping around and flinging the other eggs everywhere it won't/shouldn't hurt anything to stay in the incubator. How long has it been since it hatched?

    It's been 4 hrs for the 1st one, 2 hrs for the most recent one. The 1st one looks quite fluffy so we put it under the brooder. Kinda exciting!
