I am in the exact same situation as you....I don't know what to do either...I want to take them out and see if there is any movement but afraid to mess w/ the humidity...maybe candling w/ a damp paper towel over them?

You should leave them in the incubator, opening up the bator to candle most likely shrink wrapped the chick in the egg. Its important not to open up the incubator until the hatch is finished. Chicks can stay in the incubator for up to 24 hours.
