    Hi, I'm really looking for some help. I've 3 eggs in my incubatoe and they're on day 23 and no popping at all on any of them.
    I candles them just now and all 3 moving around inside the eggs.
    Do I crack a tiny hole and try to get them out or just leave them????

    Leave them alone. If you interfere, you're liable to kill them. Sounds like your temp was too low, and possibly your humidity was off also. Patience is called for here. Don't candle them unless you can do so without moving them. Give them extra time. Where there's life, there's hope.
