    I'm not sure I'd be so quick to help them, they may not be ready yet. Were your temps low during incubation? That would delay them, and if they're just delayed they need time to absorb blood vessels and yolk. I would leave them and see if they pip on their own, but ultimately its up to you. Good luck :fl
