    We had two hatch already: 48 hours ago and 24 hours ago. Two more eggs are pipped.

    Is the 48 hour old ok to stay one more day in there or should we extract him while trying to keep the humidity high? It's a little incubator in our ensuite so I could run the shower hot and steamy, before pulling them out. Thx!

    I would take them out. Just make it quick. You can always add a small cube of sponge with warm water after to raise humidity back up. Bit if your humidity levels are high enough don't worry about it.
