i think you can take them out when their out the egg and they take something like 7-9 days till they've fully digested the yolk sack and will feeed

its good to leave them in for 24 hours or more just to regain strength. i heard they stimulate the others to hatch?? not sure its true but might well be.

Give it at least 24 hours in the incubator - I took mine out when they were actively moving around and transferred them to the viv. Don't expect it to eat for anything up to about 4 days. You can leave very finely chopped veg in the viv in case they do try and eat something.

When first hatched, baby beardies aren't hungry - you have to wait a few days until they feel hungry, and then realise what you are putting in the viv is food. I didn't get much interest from mine until about day 4 - then it was quite fun. First they would run away from crix - and then they realised they might actually be something they could eat! Once they got started they didn't stop, so hope you've got a good supplier nearby! :lol2:
