There's a bad smell coming from the incubator. If no one pips, my mom is gonna call me at lunch. And I'm gonna come home and manually pip the eggs

Id candle before doing so because Id tried to pip an egg myself and it dried it out and died.  I had an egg not hatch til day 26

I would candle and just make an air hole, they are dying. The only thing that could cause that terrible smell is a dead chick it's awful

I think there might be one rotten egg that's causing it, maybe it'll show up when you candle it.  Probably a black mass with no veins and no movement.

Candled the eggs left. No internal pips or movement that I can see in three. But one has an internal pip and is peeping but not making progress... It's been trying to pip for hours. Should I help it?

That's a tough one. What's the temp and humidity?
