    Are tor two lips still alive? If you've helped them from the.shell, you could use a nice warm washcloth to wet the membrane and see if that helps. There is a niffty little thread under FAQ's explaining how to help babies hatch. As far as your unpipped eggs, I haven't got a clue. Hopefully someone more experienced with bator issues will chime in. Good luck.....

    Jack up the humidity and stop misting-misting actually causes the eggs to dry down faster.
    Put a sponge, bowl of water, whatever in there to get the humidity up. Don't panic-shrink wrapped chicks CAN hatch even if you have to help them.

    What day are you on?
    You may have to do more assistance than normal if your humidity has been low through the hatch.
    How do the air cells look?
