I believe you want to test if your fertile eggs have a living bird inside of it. 

 

The water test is not a good way to see if an egg is "dead", but rather it is a way to see if an egg is alive. 

 

Using the water test to see if an incubating egg is still actively growing:

What you are looking for is if the egg is "moving" or making the water moves.

See how these eggs are moving a little in the water?
