I would give it a few more days and see what happens. 28 day incubation is just a guideline after all, especially if you are not absolutely positive when she started sitting tight (all day/night, only getting up maybe once a day to eat, swim, poo). That is when true incubation starts. How many of them look to still be good when you candled? Do they look like they are at the same stage of development?
