    If you mean lights in the room? I leave them on when I only have a few eggs left to hatch and they are already pipped. If I have a lot of eggs hatching j leave the room as dark as possible so tbe hatched chicks don't bowl the eggs around too much.

    Ok thanks. Its only 13. One more thing my little chick had a string of something hanging from its but that was stuck to the shell. He's not stuck now thought but its a fleshy string hanging about a centimeter from its butt. What is it? Should I be worried???

    nope that's normal. Once it dries up you can cut it with sharp scissors close just so other chicks don't yank on it. But you shouldn't have a problem. It falls off on its own.
