In the Brooder

Okay this is my 3rd hatch first using dry incubation method. I did add water for hatching. The chicks were not due until today however one hatched yesterday morning and two others last night. Several more are shaking their eggs but haven't hatched yet...as of this morning. Im at work so who knows what going on right now. I know its bad to open the incubator during hatching but i need to get the chicks out of there. They are terrorizing the other eggs jumping on them and rolling around. The first two out helped the 3rd by ripping off chunks of shell while it was zipping...so the question is to open and remove or leave them alone. If i open can i spray water on the eggs or add additional wet clothes to keep the others from having issues? Hope to get home in a couple hours and see lots of babies!
