I'm not sure but from what i've read previously.. It'd be better to wait anyway, and hope?

If they had already started to sink it may well be too late but like trice says give it a go anyway...you never know.

Hold on for a while, just had the same happen with my water dragon eggs, maybe they weren't fertile, the might hatch, they might just shrivel up, just give it time and see.

Always try and re hydrate them. Where were they when you found them? If they have a pale yellow appearance inside when a torch is shone in they are prob infertile. Fertile eggs are normally firmish to touch white shells and pink inside.

if the eggs can be saved they will plump up again and fill out as they rehydrate..
