    Okay so we are on day 23. What do I do now? One hatched on day 20. The temperature in the humidity in the incubator state in normal ranges the whole time . I candled on day 14 and everything looked great . Now what do I do ? This is my first hatch and I'm not sure where to go from here .

    Assuming you have removed the chick from the incubator and into the brooder, remain patient and keep your fingers crossed for another day or so, would be my advice.

    Yes my poor lonely little chick is in the broader all alone. I'm calling it chicken nugget. Thanks for the advice. Should I candle again. Or keep it in lock down?
