    okay am now on day 23 and no pips as I explained before I had low humidity while I was away for a week as DH didn't do his job properly !, I think they may be dead two or three were moving yesterday but not today. How do I open the shell , just in case they are still alive to get them out ? I know the advice is not to but I just have a feeling that they are stuck and need help

    If the humidity was too low for too long, the chicks could have gotten dehydrated and were not strong enough to continue. Sorry for your loss.
