    the 4 that have pipped did so 3 hours ago and haven't progressed, are the ones that pipped and didn't come out dead?

    They can take up to 24 hrs to hatch. They could be resting.

    Great!

    So just because they pipped and no other movement doesn't mean they are dead?

    Should I help them?

    Thank you guys, I am nervous. I already prematurely removed the 2 that hatched and put them under a lamp. Thankfully I think they are fine. They are fiesty and very alert so I think they are ok.
