    I'm on day 19 now.

    On day 15 I posted that I couldnt see any movement or veins..

    At 3am day 18 I candled, still saw no movement or veins The egg is dark with an air sac. But no life like many youtube videos show. I have a bowl of water and a cloth inside for Lockdown, temperature is 37.3

    I havent touched the incubator since the morning of day 18. I'm still concerned that my three remaining eggs are gone. :-(

    Can you try to post pictures of the eggs While they're being candled? So we can see inside at what you're seeing?

    Depends on who you ask. Ask a hands off hatcher and they will tell you absolutely not, leave the bator closed until day 22. Ask a hands on hatcher and they will say, sure, just make sure you have good humidity and make sure that after you are done it comes back up.
    (Unpipped eggs carry no threat to compromising the chick and pipped eggs carry a miniscule threat. The same type of threat that getting in your car and driving you can have an accident.)
