    How long can you leave a chick in the bator before I pull them out. I am on day 20 of my first hatch. I had 3 hatch yesterday/ last night and I had 3 hatch today. I know I shouldn't open the lid but I know the dry chicks need to come out some time.

    Thanks,

    3 days after the first one hatched or after the last one hatches. Which ever comes first.

    william9792 I see your on here allot. Thanks for the fast reply. This is my first hatch so I don't know what to expect. What hatch rate can I expect to get with a still air bator compared to a bator with a fan.

    Thanks,
