    I have 10 hatched and 5 more pipped - many seem very restless in the incubator and if one moves, the others move too. Some are pecking at others - especially those that came out yesterday afternoon/early evening.

    Should I leave them (that was my plan) or should I take those that are really fluffy out to give more room??

    I have 2 egg cartons in there with the 10 babies and 16 more eggs.

    okay - so take those that are super fluffy and bored [​IMG] out to the brooder. I can do that.
