Eggs set 3-30 @ approx 10am

We are now at day 28.5 and here are the stats

Set 50 eggs. 2 were yolkers. Every other egg hit every milestone... blood island etc... I had no quitters.

Prior to lockdown on Wednesday night I checked all eggs and ALL had movement and were alive.

I had 2 hatch out on Friday

3 hatch out on saturday

2 more on sunday

and now the rest of the eggs i have nothing as of this am. I snuck a few out and candled them.. does not appear they have internally pipped. I tried the tap test and I cannot detect any movement at all. Air cells look good.

Did no added humididty for first 14 days (stayed naturally at about 50-55% then started added a wet paper towel to keep it about 60% then upped it to about 65-70% at lockdown.

Anything further that I can do other than waiting? Are my other eggs a lost cause? :(

So I opened a few. I've got perfectly formed ducklings... positioned for pipping.. but all are dead. Why? Too much humidity not enough? Membranes looked good they werent dry...
