    I have 2 eggs left that have pipped. They haven't moved or done anything for the past 24 hours. Should I candle them sometime and see if they're still alive?

    If they haven't done anything for the past 24 hours they may need some help to hatch. Check them to see if they are still alive. If they are, you can start carefully zipping around the shell for them. Stop if you see blood.

    They make be shrinkwrapped or unable to progress for other reasons.
