    You can test your eggs with two methods, 1- By ear, if no sound, there is no live, especially at this stage, 2- by taken a glass with water nearly filled to rim of glass, (make sure there is no crack marks due to chick that want to start pecking shell) at incubator temperature and watch the water for movement, Sometimes you get a late egg, I have seen many of those kinds, especially in a incubator
