    Just leave the egs alone and make sure your humidity is high. Don't take the chicks out of the bator until they're all fluffed up. Remember, chicks don't eat for the first day or so, they're still absorbing their yolk sack.

    Refrain from opening the incubator and handling the eggs. It coud potnentially mess up the hatch.
