    Okay, when can I take her out of the incubator? I use the term "her" generally.[​IMG]

    None of the others' are showing signs of hatching. She looks dry. She's so active.

    How many of them hatched? Wait until they're fully fluffed out. Wait 12-24 hours from the first pip to remove the first chicks, into the brooder at least.

    Depending on how much room you have in your bator you may need to take some out before they have all hatched. Many egg hatchers do, but make sure to let them get as dry and fluffy as possible. Make sure your brooder is a nice warm 95 degrees on one side and then remove 2 (always make sure they have a buddy to snuggle...That's what I do
