    all 3 has pipped, but nothing else now for 12 hours. they are still alive but not trying to get out. will i have to help or leave them, i am worried they might die because they are airsaddled.

    Leave them alone !
    Saddle shaped air cells shouldn’t be a problem. It can take 24 hours from pip to zip. Leave them be!
