Im on day 23 and why cant i get the temp up on my incubator? I keep turning up the temp. but its just staying at 97 or 98 degrees. 6 out of 40 eggs have hatched, is there any hope that more will hatch? or are they done?

Yes, if the temperature has been running a little low they will be late in hatching. Wait at least another day.

I would definitely wait another day or two also. I know some people who have had babies hatch out on day 24 and 25 because of low temperatures. It's a hard call, because you don't want any to rot, but it's worth it to get more little babies.
