    I have 10 babies in my Brinsea Octagon incubator and I was wondering if I should take them out. I still have eggs waiting to hatch but the babies are really crowded what should I do.

    If they have been in there long enough to be all fluffy and if youre humidity is nice and high and if you can do it fast , and its better if three are no active pips .
