The best thing you can do is keep her in the incubator on a damp paper towel. Is there any brown fluid in the egg? If so, get some distilled water (or saline is even better). Leave it in the incubator to warm up to the temperature inside the incubator. Then gently wash out the brown fluid.

I keep all of my hatchlings in the incubator on a damp paper towel until they shed. Then I separate them into individual baby tubs.

I'd give it some more time. Every year I have at least 10% that don't eat the first month and at least one or two that wants to take longer.

Just keep an eye on her belly. I would get a tube of Equate/Neosporin triple antibiotic cream withOUT the added pain relief. It will help keep bacteria off of it and keep the body moist with a thin layer applied every other day.

They are fine on damp papertowels. Just keep the papertowels clean. Some people keep them in the incubator untill they shed.
