    one chick has hatched but nothing seems to be happening with the others, few wobbles but no pips. do i leave that one chick in for 24 hours and then put it in brooder or can i leave it for longer and then remove (hopefully) all of them??

    I would wait at least 24 hours to see if anything else happens with the others. If you notice others trying to hatch, then wait longer. Avoid opening the hatcher right now, as the environment needs to be stable for the others to complete hatch. Good luck!
