    After some successful and some unsuccessful attempts at helping various eggs, I decided to just wait for the sizzles to do it alone. Well, it is day 24 and as far as I can tell, no internal pips anne the movement seems to have stopped within. What should I do? I'm trying so hard to follow the rules, but there is no real reason they are not making progress. There was movement within on day 21! What do I do???

    maybe try a float test? if they wiggle in the water they are still alive. just candle to make sure there are no pips and that the water is about 100 degrees. if not i would open one at this point & see whats going on.. but im impatient..
