    Congrats! My kids were super excited to see chicks born too!!! Hope this one is okay. It was so hard for us to see inside that bator. We had one that just needed the naval to dry out I guess because by the time we took it out it was completely normal. I guess it was 13 hours in the incubator after it was born. I didn't open my incubator and we just watched the whole thing. It can be hard to not open it and wait, especially for my kids!!!! But we made it.
    Best luck!!!!! Can't wait to see updates!

    I think I would just leave it. Sometime this process needs to finish a bit after they hatch. It is good that it is not bloody. It will probably dry and drop off. Lots of times they come out of the shell attached by a tiny bit.

    Locked down 8 turkey eggs this morning.

    6 of the 8 looking good.

    I must have marked date I set wrong as I think some had already pipped internally.

    So I'm hoping that the lack of higher humidity for a couple of days doesn't impact the hatch too bad.

    Congrats to all that have hatched.
