    How many more do you have to hatch? If no others, sounds like the humidity is really high in the bator.

    what is the humidity reading in your bator? It sounds like humidity is too high. you could transfer them to a equally warm hatcher to dry .
    You don't want them without food for too long as they just don't have the reserves that chicken chicks & etc have...
