    I Have 2 Buff N 2 Del Eggs In My Incubator That Have Been Cracked 4 24 Hours But Never Finished Enough 2 Come Out Of The Shell. I Could C The Beek On 1 Of Them N Wanted 2 Help It So Bad But Always Heard 2 Just Leave Them Alone. The 2 Buffs That Did Make It Were Very Active Yesterday N Were Rolling The Others Around Alot Before They Were Dry Enough 4 Me 2 Take Out N Put In The Brooder. Its Been Along Time Now Should I Try N Help Them N C If They Make It Or Just Leave Them Alone?

    Quote:Firstly, and I do not mean to offend, but your post was a bit hard to read - a bit too much shorthand to easily read through.

    Secondly, here are some questions.

    Do you see any movement? Can you see the membrane? Is it moist or dry?

    If it has been more than 24 hours, and you have not seen movement for a while, first try taping on the glass, or moving the incubator very slightly to make the eggs move a little bit, to see if they move. If you see nothing, then refer to the sticky thread about how to properly help with hatching, and go from there.
