I had chicks hatch this morning. Can I wait until tomorrow morning to put them in the brooder?
I usually wait until a goodly number are dry and fluffed up and then I QUICKLY put them all in the brooder and then check to be certain that the humidity stays correct in the bator.
Out of 45 eggs I only have 8 hatched (that I can see), but there are definitely more hatching.....
You'll have a BUNCH by tomorrow morning. Be patient!
You can wait up to 3 days after the first one hatched before moving them an giving them food an water.
Ok, thanks So you think it's safe to leave them all in there until morning?
(It's not like it's my first time to hatch.... I just always get nervous )
Okay, this morning 14 (total) had hatched, so I moved them to the brooder
Some more were hatching....I hope I didn't mess them up
Lots of people say to not open the incubator what they are still hatching because the humidity drops an drys the membrane in the hatching eggs. Others do it all the time. Probably better not to but you can get away with it.
