    hi! I just hatched a lavender orpingtons today. he seems to be doing great. I hear peeping in two more eggs in my incubator. am I ok to leave him in the incubator tonight? I'm worried about him. I hope the others are not far off.

    Congratulations on your new chick! Yes, you can leave chicks in the incubator for up to 48 hours after they hatch, no problem. Hope you have a successful hatch!
