    I have lost 2 chicks so far. They were due to hatch out Monday and I still have some that haven't pipped. The ones that did had a white membrane that was tough. I read the post on intervention and tried that with the second baby I think it was too late.

    What should I do about the rest?? I know they are alive but I don't think they can get out in time!

    Push you humidity up as much as you can. If you don't have a hygrometer, place some wet sponges inside the incubator. Do it quickly so you don't loose the humidity you have. Sorry about you lost chicks.
