    .not sure what to do. Discovered yesterday day 23 that eggs incubated 4-5 degrees too low all along. Candled them this morning but these are very dark maran eggs..I can only see nice big air sac. Did float test and 6 out of 12 kicking. No pips no peeps? Due to the low temps and knowing the 6 are alive what can I do? How long do I wait?
