Out of 14 eggs, we have 7 chicks running around, with 2 more pipping, it has been 24 hours since the first one hatched. When should I remove the chicks from the bator to the brooder? The eggs where scheduled to hatch yesterday and today, and I do not want to risk any humidity/temp. issues with the remaining eggs, but want to make sure that the chicks will be okay without water for another day, if that is the answer. Our brooder is a large plastic dog box with a hole cut directly in middle and red 250 watt bulb suspended, that keeps it about 90%.
