    If the eggs are full of black with an air cell.I would give them a few more days........
    Don't know if the cold weather could have had an effect................
    I have a broody Serama hatching out eggs now.........she is three days off.
    Often the hen will kick them out if they are bad or dead???????????

    Good Luck
