How long would you wait to finally help??
You can candle tap and see whats going on? if they are internally and follow the assist and then float test as suggested in the article

Yokel, first egg ever hatched here...Olive Egger named after the guy who gifted me the eggs he'd won, our own @LocalYokel
Sweet Pea...egg was marked Cream Legbar but someone said they don't think that's what it is. We'll find out, I guess. Second egg from those @LocalYokel gave me.
And this is Sluf, a Naked Neck hatched Friday from an egg marked Australorp! He's now almost 2 days old.
She doesn't have a name yet. We just call her "Little Stinker" but that's until we decide on one for sure. Phoenix is in the running - since we found her dead and unresponsive in the run and revived her.
Sweet Pea, just coming out from under Mama Heating Pad, and Sluf getting ready to duck under and warm up his bald neck. The EE in the background doesn't have a name yet, either, and behind is Little Stinker. Sluf went out to live with the bigger chicks today and is doing just fine outside.
congrats on yer babies!!!!
