    Hi ..my guineas are halfway through day 28... one hatched yesterday..(with help)... one more pipped. i keep adding water through a straw, but the troughs are empty... cant get it above 70% and im not sure my hygrometer is acurate... i dont want to loose these babies.. i have a gut feeling they are stuck in their shells. all looked good candeled before lockdown. is there anything i can do? if i open it to fill the troughs, is that worse? i have sponges, paper towels, and a maxi pad in there and added water through a straw, what else can i do?
