What to do with hatched chicken

When the eggs have hatched and the chicks are totally out of their shell, remove the vent caps for drying down.

Leave the chicks in the incubator for 24 hours at a temperature of 95F.

Caring chicks before setting the brooder

Chicks no need to drink and eat during the first 24 hours.

After this period of acclimatization you can place them in a brooder or in a special corner in the hen house (homemade brooder).
