    I am on day 23 and out of 8 eggs, I still have 4 eggs left. Will they hatch? How long do I wait?
    I think I might have shrink wrapped them. My temp all of a sudden dropped to 95 and then humidity dipped to 45 and went back up to 100 after about 5 minutes. None of them are pipped yet. What should I do?

    Hi,
    I think since it's day 23 you could take them out and candle them for movement.
    If they are still viable it won't harm them to do this.
    Best of luck,
    Carolyn
