My incubator got knocked over and the 4 eggs got cracked....three had pipped. THey are peeping?!! Do I assist in hatching or wait it out? I dont want them to die!!

I agree, put them back in and watch. Keep the humidity up so they won't dry out. Best of luck,

If they have already pipped I would put them back in the bator and let them hatch out on their own. Leave the unpipped on in the incubator also. Good luck with your peeps.

Ok all 3 are moving around in the egg (I didn't notice the pip on the 4th until I picked it up)....back in the bator...temp is returning to normal and humidity is going back up.
We lost one.

What does a shrink wrapped chick look like?

It looks like it's going to hatch on its own!! But how long does it take for them to dry?
