overdue eggs

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have some chicken eggs that are 3 days overdue.they were all viable on day 18 when I lock them down. I have tapped and listened. Nothing. I candled and see no pip and they did not wiggle in water. I just want to make sure there's nothing else I can do before I discard them.

There's not. Before discarding all you can tap into the air cell to double check for life, and/or do eggtopsies, but without a pip there is nothing you can do that would help if they are still alive.
