    Give them time. If your incubator was running a little bit low, it might take extra time for them to hatch. While the eggs are this close to the "finish line," avoid the temptation to open the incubator. At all. The chicks need that humid air to keep the membrane around them moist enough that it will tear, allowing them to exit the egg. You might not make your science fair deadline to show off your chicks, but you will still get to enjoy them when they come out!
