    The fly won't die and I doubt it will hurt the chicks. But you can open the bator and get the fly out, just put a warm, wet washcloth in there when you are finished.

    One question, why is there a nasty hard boiled egg smell?? You must have a bad egg in there, The flys are probably from that...

    [​IMG] Sorry! couldn't help it!

    The flies are not going to hurt your babies. If they were outside with mommy,

    I bet the chicks would encounter many more than just two of them. I wonder

    what'll happen if the nasty little things hit the heat bar in the top of the

    incubator ... [​IMG] Good luck!

    Are you sure they got out? More like a chick had a nice snack as a reward for hatching. [​IMG]
