Based on reading things around here, my guess would be a lower than recommended incubation temperature. I'm sure a more experienced BYCer would have more knowledge

I would like to think its possible. I would wait until day 25 and then re-asses where I'm at. I think I read somewhere that someone was on lower temp and had a day 28 hatch (granted you will have weaker chicks). If you were to wait that long, I would take the currently hatched chicks out after 2 days and transfer them to the brooder. Bump up the humidity too since you would be opening it to transfer chicks.
