hi, my incubator has some eggs still inside ( 4 polish bantam eggs and 2 quail eggs) now they were meant to hatch between Tuesday to Thursday last week, but they haven't yet and so I left them in the incubator one polish bantam hatched on Saturday but it had some difficulties and it died soon later:(. however, know I have 3 polish bantams and 2 quails eggs left and it's now Tuesday and I haven't seen any progress on the shells, I decided to do a float test and they all floated but I don't think any of them moved while in the water, then I decided to do the candle method and the chickens had some of the egg clear but the quails are hard to see. I don't know whether to take them out or leave them in there? since it been 7-10 days since there meant to be hatch day?

If you didn't see any life in the candling method then i would say they weren't viable. 7 to 10 days past due date is quite a while, i wouldn't leave them much longer then your just going to have a bunch of stink bombs. Sorry about your hatch 🥺
