Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us!
Hi and welcome to BYC - glad that you have joined us. I asked the same question last week. Best advice that i got was that its fine to take chicks out of the incubator, once they are dried out and fluffy but that its best to do so, when it there is a lull in hatching (i.e. no zipping - chick making its final breakout from the shell).
Is there any negative effect to the remaining eggs that are still in the process.
I guess it depends on how efficient your incubator is at getting back to the correct relative humidity. Its worth mentioning that the many people leave the all the chicks in the incubator until all are hatched. If you are unsure, I'd do that. Chicks can survive quite happily for at least 2 days without food or water.
Greetings and thanks for joining BYC. Hope the hatching goes well! :jumpy
Looks like CTKen has given you some good advice so I'll just say hello and thanks for joining us!
