We are incubating ringneck eggs and the chicks start breaking out of the shell but then they die. Two have made it out but died shortly after. Any suggestions/ideas would be most appreciated.

You may not have your humidity up high enough to soften the shell and when they are breaking out they use up all their energy. How long are you letting them break out before you help and if you help be very careful that they have absorbed everything before helping. Also get some powdered electrolytes for the chicks that may help.
Good Luck
