    Three of the eight eggs that were supposed to start hatching tomorrow began tonight. How long before they need to drink? What do I do? Just leave them alone? They are in a pen with food and water.

    Will it hurt if I peek again?

    you can go as long as 3 day but don't do that unless there is a very good reason, I try to get them out once the last baby is completely dry. don't peek unless you really need to, unless that is the only way to see if they are hatching.
