Removing ducklings from hatcher early...?

    2 of my Call ducklings hatched last evening, and they're taking quite awhile to dry off. They seem to be shivering a lot as well. I'm wondering if the higher humidity is making them colder. I don't really want to raise the temp, because of the other eggs, but wasn't sure how good it would be to put them in the brooder already, especially since I won't be able to monitor them for 10 hours. What do y'all think?

    Thanks!
