Call Ducks on Day 26/27- No Progress..... When Should I intervine???

    I've got 5 White Call Duck eggs on day 26 (27 in a few hours), that are making no progress- although they are rocking, no pips yet...... I know I should give them a bit more time, but when should I intervine??

    They are in a RCOM 10 pro, at 37.5*C and 70% humidity, and went into lockdown on day 23. From days 1-23, the temps were 37.5*C and 52% humidity, and were turned regually.

    I candled before lockdown, and all were looking good- air cells looking fine and all at the round side of the egg.

    Although these are my first Calls, I've got a 90-100% hatch rate with larger breeds of duck, and I have had quite a lot of experience with assisting, but I don't want to assist unless absolutely neccisery. I'm VERY nervous, since I've read that Calls are harder to hatch, especially when shipped (I bought these from eBay).

    Thank you in advance,

    Charlotte
