Will someone PLEASE PLEASE help me! I have fertile eggs but I have no idea if they are dead, I torched them but the eggs went dark from the middle to the other side, will they explode?? are they dead? Or are they just big chicks? When I got them I have no idea how old they are, but I'm guessing 10 to 14 days. The blood vanes are quite pail pink, I don't THINK I can see any movement, I REALLY REALLY don't want them to explode!! I haven't tried the egg float test because the Web told me they will explode if they touch cold water, and I think hot water will kill them, and I also don't really know how to do it. I'd LOVE it if someone telled me what Ineed to do.
