    I have 2 eggs that have made it to the hatching stage. One started to pop Sunday (day28) and has gone no further. The other has done nothing.

    I candles both in day 28. The air chamber on the pup on was dark. The other the light still shines through.

    Recandled day 30 both are dark in the air chamber, I am getting no noise or movement from either egg.

    Not sure if these are still viable? Everything I have read says do not help them. Just wondering at what do I shut everything down and check the eggs open or dispose of them.

    Any help would be great.

    Sometimes you do need to help. Are they still with us? @Orca5094 or @Lacrystol may be able to help - there is also a hatching forum.

    Sorry to hear about your lost. Wish I got to you sooner perhaps a safe hole may have helped.
