    I am on day 23 or 24 and figured that they were done so I opened bator and candeled before getting ready to get rid of them. I seen movement and it looked like beak was in or close to air sack so I got it back in as fast as I could and added more water in vent hole. Do you think I killed them. LIKE I SAID IN OTHER ONE. I NO SIT ON MY HANDS LONGER. Did it as long as I could take it. I even got ehd of carton a litte wet and humidty is back up again. It only went down a little. I am hopung they will make it. Thank you so much for any and all help

    your temps might have been a little low.. but for me at day 23, if I see that the chick has pipped the membrane and not the shell, I pip the shell to give them oxygen. if they haven't hatched 6 hours after that, I help some more. Making certain that I don't cause any bleeding.

    Mine were due today, and when I came home from the store the bator was up to 104! I freaked and snatched em out and candled. I still saw movement! I put them back in right away! Here it is 5 hours later and have a pip!!!! Im no eggspert, but you are probably still ok.Good Luck.
