It is 5 days after hatch date...I got 6 babies. No more...have the eggs gone bad? I candeled on day 13 and 12 looked great out of 15! I have never done this before. I have a Brinsea 20 octogon with turner...When the babies hatched they were 3 days early according to my calculations. I removed them but they moved the other eggs around and most of them were laying on their side. Could this be what happened. Should I remove the eggs and be happy with my new fluffies? Please advise.

Yes. I never wait more than a day after hatch date. The chicks keep getting bigger, hence too big to even hatch, or they've run out of air, or they died days ago. Very late chicks rarely thrive anyway.
