Thats the problem with staggered hatches, the first set needs higher hum where the other 8 dont !!
Have you up'd your hum yet ?? What did you up it to ?
Is there a way you can turn them without opening the bator, Somthing you can stick in the vent holes to roll them a little ?
If you open the bator to turn the others you are risking the others that are piping. But the others should still be turned.
Go get another bator and use it as a hatcher, then you wont have any problems ( you know you need 2 )
