No dont touch the eggs, never, trust me on this, if the leo does not make it out on its own then its likely not to make it if you help it out for very long.

I cut one out last season, i knew you shouldnt do it but my heart got the better of me, 4 weeks later after hand feeding it every night it died, i should of left it to nature, it would of been kinder to the leo and a damn sight easier on me.
