    are you sure they're zipping? i would give them an hour after they start trying to ACTUALLY zip before i tried to help. the movement of zipping helps absorb the remiaining yolk.

    did both pip externally? if not then the second one will need air ASAP

    Sorry i don't know much about hatching and helping. If they have external pips and are still activity zipping the egg it might be best to just give them time. I imagine twin hatching is very difficult on both of them. Hopefully someone will post info on how and when to help there are videos for assisted hatchs. Your very lucky they have made it this far congrats and fingers crossed for a successful hatch

    Oh, that's not zipping. but you do need to find the other chick and get air to it.
