Hi All, I started the lockdown at day 18 and chicks started hatching a day early on day 20. When can I open the incubator to remove the chicks that are dry? They're at day 21 today but some hatched over 24hrs ago. Should I just leave them al in another 24hrs? I'm using a Brinsea 380.

Thanks!
 

Lovem all

Personally I'd put them in a brooder, but doing it really quickly. I'm not sure if that's what you should do though. I only have hatched a single guinea lol

Take the chicks out when they are dry, it's to prevent them from rolling the other eggs that are still waiting to hatch. Remove the chicks then mist the incubator to bring humidity back up.
