When the incubation period has gone that long, there is may be some problems getting any to hatch. With my experience after day 20 mortality and dead in shell rates go up.

What was your humidity for the first 14 days and what did you raise it to at lockdown?

Is there a good flow of oxygen into the incubator?

Have you checked your thermometer for accuracy? It is recommended that you use 3 thermometers as they all tend to read differently.

Don't give up yet, give it one more day. If your temperature was low it can slow development.
