    All you can do is wait. What's your humidity at?

    Could be just a day or two late, from temp being too low. It is tricky unless you have a very accurate thermometer.

    Humidity could have been a bit higher. That may be the reason the chick was only able to zip half way. Up your humidity just a bit (without opening the bator if at all possible).

    Are you using still air or forced air?

    I have an LG still air that I keep at 99.5 degrees with the thermometer sitting on top of the eggs! I also had water on day 18....I do not know what the humidity is at though, I just fill the given spots. Mine usually hatch dead on 21 days.

    Hope this helps!!

    I usually hatch at 55-65% humidity.

    so do you think it is still possible that they/any could still hatch?
