    OK I brought the temp up to 99.6 and I candled one and it looked like it pipped but when I poked a hole in it , it has not pipped it is alive should I just put it back in and wait?

    put it back and hopefully the humidity gets back up quickly.. try not to open the incubator because you loose humidity... what was the humidity during hatching before lock down? I would up the temperature to at least a100 degrees to 101 degrees.

    and what is the humidity now.. the RH humidity should be higher during lock down than during the 25 days of incubating.

    The humidity is 76% I have a rag, sponges and troughs full. I don't know what else I can do to raise it any more.

    The humidity is fine now..its during the incubation period that sounds high if its the relative humidity that your going by. No other signs of other eggs piping?
