    Ok I incubated 13 eggs it's now day 24...3 hatched 8 eggs are fully developed but dead no movement so I opened them and stinky dead but I still have 2 alive with no pipping yet. Should I wait or start a pip hole???

    Forgot to mention 1 of them hatched Sunday morning and 2 hatched at about 10 pm mon night and the 2 live eggs that are left are the same breed as the ones that hatched last night. I'm guessing all the dead eggs died recently because they looked pretty much fully developed and yolk sacs were absorbed. I think they got stuck in shell

    Sounds like you've either got some major variance's in temp in the incubator or your thermometer might be inaccurate. Either way, I would not make a pip for them, let them do what they do. If you pip them and they aren't ready, you could kill them. Let mother nature take care of them (hard, I know). Next time calibrate your instruments to make sure they're giving you accurate readings.

    Good luck, I hope they hatch :fl
