    If they were pipping id just put them back in and leave them and watch them. Should be developed enough to survive.

    I agree, put them back in and watch. Keep the humidity up so they won't dry out. Best of luck, [​IMG]

    If they have already pipped I would put them back in the bator and let them hatch out on their own. Leave the unpipped on in the incubator also. Good luck with your peeps.

    What does a shrink wrapped chick look like?

    It looks like it's going to hatch on its own!! But how long does it take for them to dry?
