5/25 at 9pm was exactly 21 days. 4 chicks hatched within 12 hours prior and after that time. Yesterday I went to toss the remaining 6 eggs. Before I ddi that I did a float test. OMG one of the eggs started bobbing around like a bobber with a fish on the line and it was PEEPING! I immediately put it back in the incubator and put in warm water to increase the humidity. Now what? I know conventional wisdom says wait but it's been almost 6 days now. It is eating at my heart to think it's maybe stuck and suffering. There is no signs of any pipping. What do I do?

If I decide to help, and I am not sure yet what to do, where do I start chipping away at the shell, what end or in the middle like they do when they unzip themselves?
