    You need to use a flashlight in a dark room to candle. Do you have one?​

    yes, I have one, but it's really hard because the chicken is so big in there

    At this point you need to candle and watch it for a few minutes. If you see movement put it back. If you don't it is probably dead.​

    I'm afraid it will shrink wrap.
    What do you think about the water test?
