    They can stay in the incubator up to 3 days. When i hatch i give them 24 hours. Make sure you have his little box with the lights ready! and dip his beak in the food and water! But after they dry you can remove them. Is this your first hatch?

    Do you have other eggs in there that might hatch? If you open the incubator to take this one out, you might shrink wrap one that is trying to hatch by letting the humidity out. I've done that before.
