Ive got 2 eggs that have holes pecked thru and i can see the beaks moving around but they have been that way for about 8 hrs now. At what point do you go in and attempt to save the chicks?

As tempting as it is...Leave the incubator closed. I have lost many chicks from "helping" them. This time I think I will truly be in Lockdown, and not open it at all until they are all done lol....though it is super hard. (I got a bator with a completely clear top, so that helps me)
