    I put on Thursday eggs into Lockdown, and should have been hatched by now. I candled them right now and the chicks are alive in there, but the Aircells are to big, so they don`t seem to be in the right position to pick and hatch.
    What can I do? Can I do something at all. Or would I make things worse when I try to help them hatching (no egg is picked yet!). I don`t want to help them and make them suffer then.
    I really need advice.

    You can try and gently crack the shell and remove the chicks.
