This is my first time incubating shipped eggs. The eggs arrived in great condition, set after several hours and candled on day 18 again and removed the ones that stopped developing but otherwise the ones I left in there to hatch seemed ok. Humidity is currently at 70% temp at 99 and am on day 22. Some hatched yesterday and some pipped. The ones that pipped haven't hatched yet. What can be the matter?

You could candle again to see if they need any help or if there is some other defect.
I don't really want to open the incubator as much as possible, but did take one out & helped it out--hope it'll make it. I'm thinking maybe they didn't lose enough moisture...the learning curve is just so steep in raising poultry...:lol:
