    That's good :D I would try to leave it alone now and keep your humidity high and let nature takes it course.
    Do you have other eggs ready to hatch?

    When you say your on day 22 did you count the day you set them as day 1 or count day 1 after a full 24 hours of incubation? Have your temps been steady through incubation?
