I don't know if this is the right place to post this but..
My eggs are on day 19 and I thought it would be good to do the float egg test. All of them sinked because the air cell was kind of small. Not very small though. The problem is, I don't know whether or not I drowned them. I used warm water and I waited 3 seconds before removing each egg from the water

You didn't drown them. But I'm unclear what you were hoping to achieve.
Definitely leave them alone
from here on until hatched. That's easier said than done. We've all been there. Stay strong. It's what's best for them.

Oh dear, I wouldn't have recommend the float test so late in incubation, candling would have been better. But now its done its done. Don't worry it probably won't matter. If you don't have a candling light you can use a mobile phone light, they are pretty strong and in a case it works great for me. Other thing is, next time you could weigh them, they have to lose about 13% of their weight, then you know you got the it right.
