Have you tried to go into a very dark room (closet) with your lights to look into the eggs?

Well if you can't see in them I would just leave them be and wait to see if they hatch or not.
There isn't much more you can do.

I use an Incubrite flashlight. I can generally see enough in the very dark eggs to know if the air cell is expanding but you must make sure that the batteries are fresh. Obviously the brighter the light the better and the darker the room too. Sometimes it takes a little while for your eyes to adjust to what you are looking at too. Weighing the eggs is also helpful for checking development. Sorry about you cracking an egg with a chick, I know how heartbreaking that can be.

I not a hunter .
I like to fish .
But then I release them .
