    Keep the hunidity at around 80% starting on day 24....take them out of the turner the next day..day 25.....once you lay them on their side out of the turner, don't touch them....they will situate themselves in the egg preparing to exit the egg....you will see it roll or even shake but, just leave them alone they will be fine....if they pip the shell and nothing else for 20-24 hours, take tweezers and carefully peel some egga away and if the inner membrane is tough, tear a small slit in it.....but, be very careful and very gentle
    Good luck
